A Book Review~Scaredy Squirrel :)

Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt is one of my new favorites for sure.  It's a sweet little book with great illustrations, color usage, and a really fun use of language. Take a risk. Do something out of the ordinary.  Join Scaredy Squirrel as he voyages into the unknown! 

There are lots of super themes and messages throughout Scaredy Squirrel.  One of my favorites is the notion of breaking out of your same routine, and trying new things. This would be a terrific pick for maybe the kid who is a bit on the shy side, and is hesitant to try new and (oh no!) unknown things. Plus, the language is hilarious!  I hope you decide to give this fantastic little book a quick read. Enjoy!
