Mr. Wellington by David Rabe
While playing around with his brother a baby squirrel accidentally falls out of his nest and finds himself on the ground, alone. He calls for his mother but she doesn't come to help him and the squirrel is very scared and lonely. Jonathan is on his way home after dark when he finds the squirrel in the road and tries to help him. Jonathan takes the baby home and does everything he can to make the squirrel comfortable and healthy but the squirrel, now named Mr. Wellington, doesn't seem to be doing well. Jonathan and his brother have to find a way to help Mr. Wellington thrive, even if it means giving him up.
