WARNING: Scaredy Squirrel insists that everyone wash their hands with antibacterial soap before reading this book.
Scaredy Squirrel is afraid of many things out in the unknown, things like green Martians, killer bees, tarantulas, poison ivy, germs, and sharks. Fortunately, Scaredy Squirrel knows how to cope with his fears. He never leaves his nut tree.
What's more, Scaredy Squirrel is fully equipped with an emergency kit and an escape plan.
Still, sometimes things don't go exactly according to plan....
I was completely charmed by Scaredy Squirrel. This delightful picture book is a fun way to discuss dealing with fears -- but mostly it's a lot of silly fun.
