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 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 ...

Listen, it might be dangerous stepping outside of your tree - but sometimes, you just have to leap into the unknown!

Our fretful hero discovers something profound and wonderful about himself when he is challenged to leave his comfort zone.

Scaredy Squirrel lives a predictable and comfortable life but sometimes it's good to be brave and try new things. Join him on his adventure to explore the unknown!

Get your kids "hooked" on this great series of books by Melanie Watts. Realize that some fears are worse in our heads than in real life! It's OK to take a risk and "jump into the unknown", like Scaredy Squirrel.

My favourite part is when scaredy squirrel makes his own beach because he is too scared to go to the beach.

What started out as an innocent purchase for the Monarch Reading Club is turning into a fan club of sorts with our library staff. I now "visit" him on fb.
