Young children would get a kick out of the humor in this book. The cartoon-like illustrations are humorous. It would be enjoyed by young children especially.

Squirrel is scared ti sleep because of bad dreams. His horoscope reveals his dreams will come true so he prepares for the worst. In the end he is safe and finally gets sleep. This book could be used to discuss fears as well as the need for good sleep. ( )

This book is about a squirrel who is afraid to fall asleep because of the dreams he may have. He decides to skip out on sleeping all together. One day, he sees his horoscope and it says that all his dreams will come true, which scares him. He takes precautions to make sure his dreams can't harm him at midnight. It ends up creating an even bigger mess. He slips on all the contraptions he had laid out and decides to play dead, which in turn, he falls asleep. When he wakes up, he feels so much better and is thinking clearly. He realizes he shouldn't be afraid of anything while sleeping.

Book description
Scaredy never sleeps -- sleep might mean bad dreams about dragons, ghosts, vampire bats and polka-dot monsters. Our wide-eyed hero has a plan: stay awake all night, every night. Between counting stars, playing cymbals and making scrapbooks, he does a good job of avoiding dreamland. With exhaustion taking its toll, Scaredy comes face-to-face with an alarming horoscope prediction: All his dreams are about to come true! He must prepare for the worst and his Bad Dream Action Plan includes a fire extinguisher to snuff out dragons and a fan to blast away ghosts. But when disaster strikes, will Scaredy survive this ordeal? Will he thank his lucky stars? Will he find sweet dreams? Scaredy Squirrel at Night tackles a fear everyone -- and especially the young -- can relate to. It's a bedtime story to make light of kids' fear of the dark and a fable for our sleep-deprived society.
