Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt
In this first book in the Scaredy Squirrel saga, readers are introduced to a squirrel who is scared to leave his safe home, a tree. There are certainly too many things outside of his little tree that could hurt him! Things like green martians, poison ivy, or germs.
So Scaredy goes about his daily routine of watching his surroundings, eating nuts, and sleeping. But have no fear, his emergency kit is nearby and is stocked full of items that will help on the case he must flee his tree home.
How surprised is Scaredy when he is forced to leave his tree on the account of a killer bee and finds out something very special about himself! Scaredy learns a lot and his days are much brighter after that.
What I Thought:
I love Scaredy Squirrel, his stories have fast become some of my favorite books! Scaredy is such a delightful character and it is fun to watch him overcome his fears, no matter how ridiculous, and become a better squirrel.
Kids will eat these stories up! Very highly recommended!
This book is an ALA Notable Children's Book.
