This book is about animals, social situations, friendship, and communities. The story is about a group of prairie dogs. One day a tennis ball rolls down into their hole. The prairie dogs figure out how to pull the fuzz off of the tennis ball and they make a new fashion out of it. After awhile, the excitement of the fuzz turns into greed, and starts to tear apart the prairie dog town. When the meanest prairie dog takes all the fuzz for himself, the prairie dogs actually end up rescuing him and saving his life.

This is a great book when talking about communities with the class. If you are doing a unit on communities, this book shows how a community can come together and help someone out.
Also, if you were talking about prairie dogs and their habitat, this book shows the prairie dogs habitat in a fun way.
