I love this! So many children have big fears and if they just let go they can find their "secret power" of being able to soar! ( )

Scaredy is an paranoid squirrel who has a fear of the unknown and many phobias. He sits in his nut tree day after day doing the same thing. Just in case something scary shows up, he has a emergency kit, agenda, and plan for everything. However, one day things do not go as planned, and this results in panic, a surprise, momentary death, and eventually an adjustment to regularly scheduled events. ( )

Scaredy Squirrel is an entertaining story about a flying squirrel that is terrified of leaving his tree for fear that something bad might happen to him. Thankfully, his fears are proved wrong in the end. This story is important lesson for children because sometimes they are fearful of trying new things. Scaredy Squirrel's message is encouraging to many students and could be used as a read-aloud for students who get stuck in a routine or are scared of breaking a routine.

Scaredy Squirrel is too scared to leave his tree, but when he is startled out of it, he makes a startling discovery...he is a flying squirrel! ( )

Scaredy Squirrel is a story about an apprehensive squirrel. Children, especially young ones, can relate to this story because it is about a squirrel who does not like things out of the ordinary and to leave his comfort zone. As the story progresses, Scaredy Squirrel learns that it is okay to leave his comfort zone, and that he is okay. Children and parents will laugh at Scaredy Squirrel's OCD tendencies, and cheer him on when he learns that he can leave his nut tree.
