Scaredy Squirrel at Night


Watt, Melanie. 2009. Scaredy Squirrel at Night. Kids Can Press.

Would you let your fears keep you up at night? That's just what Scaredy Squirrel does. He's afraid to go to sleep. Afraid to dream. But it's not easy not sleeping. He has to think of ways to stay awake. And the lack of sleep is effecting his life. (In fact, if this goes on, he might have had to change his name to Cranky.) One day Scaredy Squirrel reads his horoscope. It reads that all his dreams will come true at midnight. What's a squirrel to do? Come up with a game plan and fast! What's his plan? Wouldn't you like to know?! Read and see for yourself if this Scaredy Squirrel can conquer his fears once and for all and have a peaceful night's sleep!

I loved this one. Definitely recommended. Makes for a fun read aloud.
