    A joke adventure book. My young reader says "It's a five! Maybe a four." I'm not sure she takes anything but a few laughs away after each reading. The conflicts don't really make sense. The character changes but doesn't learn anything that would be obvious from the beginning to any child who has been outside, ever. The caution of poison ivy is good, I guess. I'm averaging our ratings.

    Hilarious.

    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 a children's book that tells about a squirrel that is scared of going outside of his home, a nut tree. The places outside of the nut-house is called "the unknown." He is afraid of green Martians, killer bees, tarantulas, poison ivy, germs, and sharks- basically things most people are afraid of. But he is always prepared when things might go wrong, he has a daily schedule, and he has a first-aid-kit just in case. This book about a paranoid squirrel is a good children's book, has cute illustrations, and a good storyline.

    I enjoyed this book a lot. The illustrations brought this silly story to life. Scaredy Squirrel is a squirrel with a very active imagination. It is so active that he has trouble sleeping at night for fear of mysterious monsters. He devises a series of booby traps to keep the monsters away and realizes that they were all in his head. This would be a great book for children that have similar nighttime fears.

    Really cute!! A squirrel is afraid of what is beyond is nut tree home. He doesn't want to leave for fear of sharks, poison ivy, killer bees, etc. He soon finds that nothing too bad will happen if he leaves his tree. The pictures are really cute, bright, and colorful. This is perfect for those kids who are a bit scared of trying new things. The story helps the kids realize that baby steps are okay. This is s great book.

    Summary:Scaredy Squirrel is too scared to leave his nut tree. He stays in his nut tree all day because it's a familiar and safe place to him, but one day he decided to adventure out. He created an emergency survival kit incase something happened. He adventured out and his emergency kit didn't work the way he planned. His kit fell from an unknown nut tree and as Scaredy Squirrel tried to catch it he realized that he wasn't just an ordinary squirrel, but a flying squirrel!Personal Reaction:I love that this story shows that is you never try to overcome your fears, then you may be missing out on something that you didn't know you could do. I enjoyed this story because I was once like a "Scaredy Squirrel". I have found out a lot about me that I didn't know I could do until I adventured out and had plans go wrong, like he did with his emergency kit.Classroom Extension Ideas:1. In the classroom, the teacher could have her students make their own emergency survival kit with stuff they would take to an "unknown" place. 2. In the classroom, the teacher could have her students share stories about stuff that they are scared of and what they could do to change their fear.

    Summary: This is the story of a squirrel who is scared of everything outside of the tree he lives in. One day, when a 'killer' bee flies by and messes up Squirrel's plans he realizes that life is a lot more fun when you step outside of the tree. Genre: Picture BookPersonal Reflection: I think this is a really cute story that kids could relate to. Everyone is scared of something sometimes. A lot of us are scared of the unknown, just like Scaredy Squirrel. The illustrations complement the story well.Concept: I think kids could really relate to this story and the fear of the unknown. It might be an interesting lesson to have kids write down what they are scared of most and then have everyone share to see that most of them are scared of the same things and they aren't alone.

One day a killer bee appears but Scaredy squirrel knocks the emergency kit out of the tree so he jumps out to follow and discovers he is a flying squirrel. His life changes. This is a funny story about a squirrel afraid of the unknown.

    (easy, picture) Squirrel is set in his ways. He is afraid of the unknown and loves his familiar comfortable life, except that it is, well, just a little too comfortable. One day something happens that forces him to jump out into the unknown and he discovers it is not as bad as he thought it would be! This book has the sweetest illustrations and was genuinely funny. I think it would appeal to any youngster who has ever been afraid to reach out on his own or try something out of the box. Squirrel shows them that sometimes putting aside your fear of the unknown and trying something new can be the best thing you can ever do. An interactive oppurtunity with this book is to have the children name the items in each square from Squirrel's emergency kit, what he does in his daily routine or the things he is scared of. You could also have them call out the days of the week on the page where it shows squirrel sitting in the same tree every day, just on a different branch. The message here is to tell little ones to not be afraid of the unknown and sometimes when you reach out you may just discover a brand new you (Squirrel discovers he is actually a flying squirrel when he jumps out of the tree)!

    V. cute. I love the cute asides, the winning metanarrative, the way Scaredy Squirrel micromanages your progress through his book. I like that the author is also afraid of sharks. I like also that you don't expect the inspiring twist until it comes--but ALSO that you see it coming just before it does.

    This picture book is from the prolific and talented Melanie Watts tells the story of Scaredy Squirrel, who never wants to leave his tree. But when disaster strikes and he ends up outside of his comfort zone, he realizes that the world is not so scary after all.
  • (5/5)
    This is a fun story about a squirrel who is scared of everything and takes precautions when doing everything. There is even a page before the title page that recommends everyone washing hands with antibacterial soap before reading the book. This book is a good introduction to making lists to summarize ideas, such as Scaredy Squirrel's lists of advantages about not leaving the nut tree. The story is creative, including an exit plan from the nut tree and steps to follow in an emergency. When a killer bee strikes Scaredy Squirrel realizes he's a flying squirrel and that leaving the nut tree is not so bad. This is a good book to read to students about being adventurous and trying new things that are scary. You never know what will happen until you try something new.

    a fun book that incorporates Graphica for students who struggle with too many words.
  • (5/5)
    Scaredy Squirrel knows that the world is a scary, unpredictable place, and that is why he sticks to his nut tree. He is prepared for emergencies of course, and has a plan for everything. When an emergency arises, he finds that plans don't always work out as planned.
  • (4/5)
    Scaredy Squirrel is very funny--and a little bit sad. Being that scared is a sad state of affairs, but his coping mechanisms are hilarious. He is sure to inspire any young (or old) readers to re-examine their fears in favor of just a little courage.

    This takes a tongue-in-cheek swipe at all those who live in fear of germs, weather and all that lurks in the unknown. The worksheets will seem too familiar to the book's audience.

    Who knew that Scaredy Squirrel was a flying squirrel? It is amazing what you learn about yourself when you are willing to step out of your comfort zone! This is a fun book to read with an exceptional layout and design that keeps the reader entertained! It is a book that encourages kids to be safe but to not let their fear of the unknown get the best of them. When you are done reading it, it makes you laugh at how ridiculously worried Scaredy Squirrel was about...everything! I especially liked the warning at the beginning of the book where Scaredy Squirrel insisted that everyone wash their hands with antibacterial soap before reading the book!

    Adorable story about a very scared squirrel, who, I think, has OCD. This would be a great story to read to any child if they are afraid of something, because it would help them face their fears. So cute!
  • (5/5)
    One of the best kids books EVER. Adults and children alike will love Scaredy and his issues. I recommend this one to everyone whether you have kids or not.

    Hilarious book, even for an adult. The illustrations are wonderful and keep the child engaged in the book. It is a story about facing your fears. Scaredy Squirrel was afraid to leave the tree but soon found out that nothing bad would happen to him. A great lesson for children to learn.A great book to read to class as it does teach a face your fears lesson. Perhaps, you could have a discussion with your students on their fears and come up with ways to help them face their fears.

    I loved this book! Melanie Watt is such a talented author. I could picture myself reading the story of Scaredy Squirrel at the beginning of the school year. Students starting out a new school year could relate to Scaredy Squirrel's fear of the "unknown".

    I was introduced to this book at library storytime. The librarians really like this book and the sequels, and the kids there get into it a lot.Scaredy squirrel is afraid of... well... everything. Mostly the unknown. After all - it may contain sharks! Or germs! Or green martians! Or... KILLER BEES!!!!! So he just stays in his tree. He can eat a nut and look at the view, eat a nut and look at the view all day long. No excitement. No danger. Everything absolutely under control.Until a killer bee appears, flinging the poor squirrel to the ground. Luckily, he finds out he's a flying squirrel. And luckier still, he knows just what to do. Playing dead, after all, is ALWAYS a good option. So he hangs out there for two hours and goes home, and makes DRASTIC changes to his life. Now, we learn, he goes out into THE UNKNOWN every day for two hours to play dead.(He's still kinda scared of everything.)The book is full of diagrams and detailed plans, so read it once or twice to yourself before you try reading it aloud. Be sure to ham it up, too - this is the sort of book that's MADE for frantic mugging and dramatic pauses.

    Scaredy Squirrel is a quirky little character who's afraid of leaving his tree for a variety of reasons, unfortunately even our best laid plans for staying safe and sound can go wrong, and for Scaredy Squirrel, it is no different. Hilariously written and illustrated by Melanie Watt, Scaredy Squirrel is the tale of how it's a positive life change when we venture out from our comfort zone. I highly recommend this book for all children and adults, it will have they whole family laughing out loud, even just before bedtime.

    A neurotic squirrel follows a strict daily routine and is terrified of leaving his tree. He is prepared for disaster - until it actually occurs. If only management would use this as a design guide for powerpoint presentations. This might e funnier for adults than for small children, but I enjoyed reading it aloud, and there's plenty of scope for talk.
