Scaredy Squirrel

I love books that give readers more than just a story. The pictures in Mélanie Watt’s Scaredy Squirrel are just as important as the text and bring a sense of interaction with readers. There are images of things Scaredy Squirrel is afraid of, a breakdown of his daily schedule, and a detailed chart of the exact locations he has visited in his tree. In his first adventure, Scaredy Squirrel explains that he is afraid of, well, pretty much everything. He never leaves his tree because of the danger that exists outside of it. However, one day his life changes when he falls out of his tree and discovers he is a flying squirrel. Now his daily schedule is different…slightly.

More Scaredy Squirrel adventures that feature the same humor and interaction: Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend and the recently released Scaredy Squirrel at the Beach.

    I adore Scaredy Squirrel! I recently discovered him in French and the books are just as charming and wonderful in that language! (His name is Frisson l’ecureuil.) My favorite is when he thinks his ideal friend is the goldfish because he’s not as dangerous and germy…
