Scaredy Squirrel


Product Description

Published Canada, 2006
Scaredy Squirrel never leaves his nut tree. It's way too dangerous out there. He could encounter tarantulas, green Martians or killer bees. But in his tree, every day is the same and, if danger comes along, he's well-prepared. Scaredy Squirrel's emergency kit includes antibacterial soap, band-aids and a parachute. Day after day he watches and waits, and waits and watches, until one day his worst nightmare comes true. Scaredy Squirrel suddenly finds himself out of his tree where germs, poison ivy and sharks lurk. But as Scaredy Squirrel leaps into the unknown, he discovers something really uplifting: nothing horrible is happening in the unknown today. All this excitement has inspired him to make changes to his life. This delightful storybook for children can be used to talk about social phobia or fears or challenging yourself. It's funny and witty and clever.
