Scaredy Squirrel

Scaredy Squirrel never leaves his nut tree.  The outside world is just too dangerous.  He has a schedule, an emergency plan and a first aid kit.

But as a bee flies by (is it a killer bee?!), nothing goes according to plan.  How will Scaredy Squirrel recover?

Children will enjoy hearing parents read Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt.  She treats what could be a very serious topic with grace and humor – including a warning at the beginning of the book:

WARNING!  Scaredy Squirrel insists that everyone wash their hands with antibacterial soap before reading this book.

(My ten-year-old, in all seriousness, did ask me if I followed the warning.)

And if your child loves Scaredy Squirrel, Watt has written several other books about this beloved, if timid, squirrel.

Highly recommended for ages 2 and up.
