Kid Reviews: Scaredy Squirrel at the Beach

There are lots of children's book characters that I love. Only a few become family members--the kind that you love to laugh about but also just love. Olivia is one. So is Scaredy Squirrel. I mean look at his leisure suit. He is wearing it for a birthday party to which he is only inviting himself. (Guests cause too much stress.) This cover is from Melanie Watt's newest Scaredy Squirrel book. But there are other Scaredy Squirrel books, too, including Scaredy Squirrel at the Beach, which Miss Jett's second grade class at St. Peter's reviewed for April's Save the Laughing Children! (and the Picture Book.)

Here are select reviews by Grace:




And Raymin. To me, this one looks a bit like a mummy, something Scaredy Squirrel would definitely be afraid of. In a future book, perhaps he'll travel to Egypt. (Actually, if you know Scaredy Squirrel, you know that even visiting a neighboring tree would send him over the edge. That's what we love about him.)
