Scaredy Squirrel doesn't like to have bad dreams and avoids sleep as much as he can. He has to face the consequences of not sleeping, and when he reads his horoscope, he thinks that this will be the night that all his (bad) dreams will come true. This book could aid in helping a young child face their own fears of bad dreams. It is a sweet and safe story that shows us not everything is as it seems. ( )

Squirrel is afraid of dreams and what kind of dreams he will have. He stays up all night with a to do list to avoid sleeping. I like how it tells us the side effects of not sleeping. Its a cute book but I wasn't too interested in it nor reading it again. ( )

Scaredy Squirrel is afraid to go to sleep because of bad dreams. So he/she stays up as long as possible with bad side effects. But, it does fall asleep and nothing bad happens. In fact only good things come from sleep.

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.
