Scaredy Squirrel Goes Camping, by Mélanie Watt

Scaredy Squirrel Goes Camping

Oh Scaredy Squirrel! Is there a more lovable paranoid neurotic in children's literature? I love all the Scaredy Squirrel books, but I especially love the ones in which Scaredy Orville Squirrel (S.O.S.) has to go out into the wide world of germs and dangers (like Scaredy Squirrel Goes to the Beach). In Scaredy Squirrel Goes Camping, Scaredy is afraid of--you guessed it--camping. This is particularly hilarious considering he lives in the woods! But he's convinced that campsites will be filled with all kinds of scary things like quicksand, zippers and penguins. He'd rather watch camping shows on TV. The only problem? The electrical outlet for his television is located right in the middle of the campground.

If you haven't read the Scaredy Squirrel books, I highly recommend them. They're okay for preschoolers, but elementary-aged kids will adore them, especially the detailed "safety plans" that Scaredy makes for everything. Awesome!

Hit the jump to see some of the things Scaredy Squirrel is afraid of!

Magda's Take:
"Can we read his safety plan again? What's quicksand? How do you get out of quicksand? He'd better be ready!"
