This book explains the predictable day in the life of a scared to death squirrel. Everything is the same daily, except an unexpected guest makes an appearance. The squirrel's plans are changed and his routine is changed. I loved the illustrations in the book. ( )

I like this book as a social story book. It helps students who may have the same issue of being afraid of something. They can see how Scaredy Squirrel overcomes this fear. It gives kids the realization that others may feel like they do and that is ok but there are ways to overcome that.

This was absolutely adorable, and I as a parent connected a lot with this writers style and humor. My daughter and I wonder what will be next these humorous books. Very wordy and entertaining, filled with list making and many puns. ( )

Scaredy Squirrel tells the story of a timid squirrel who is hesitant of making friends due to irrational fears. This story encourages readers to branch out of their comfort zone to make new friends. This comedic approach ultimately portrays the overall meaning of the book, to not be afraid to try new things and meet new people. The illustrations and easy to read text makes this story entertaining and enjoyable. ( )

The story of a squirrel who is scared of everything and accidentally is put in a situation where he has no choice but to face the world and his fears. He learns something rewarding about himself in the process. Great book for early elementary/pre-k classroom. ( )
