    1. If you have little ones in your home and have not checked out the Scaredy Squirrel series, get thee to a library. We read these with my nephews when they were younger, and the books sparked much laughter and conversation about what scared this squirrel and how he dealt with his fear, with lots of re-enactment of the "play dead" option. I recently found one we had not read together, and while it is not as good as the earlier ones, it was still fun to read.


    2. Such efforts Scaredy Squirrel will go through just to stay at home where it's safe! I love that he wants to camp with his TV and so goes into the wilderness to plug in the extension cord. Cute and funny. Great book for fans of silly squirrels.


    3. Scaredy Squirrel tends to overthink things a little bit, but in the end he's pretty well justified.In this book, Scaredy Squirrel appreciates the outdoors, but he's afraid of all the dangers it may hold, like the three bears. His solution is to watch the nature channel on TV, but - uh oh! - he has to plug in his TV through an extension cord, which he must guide through the "rugged wilderness!"This would be great to share with one or two children, kindergarten or older. Kids can help point out ho [...]


    4. The Scaredy Squirrel stories are funny, but also point out some important truths. In this adventure, Scaredy needs to plug in an extension cord so he can watch a show about camping on TV, because actually going camping is too much bother. The way he over-prepares for everything applies to this trip, too. He plans his route, he thinks of all the dangers he may find, he packs important supplies And things go wrong - of course! But Scaredy realizes that some things are worth the bother after all.Th [...]


    5. While I've liked the other titles in the Scaredy Squirrel series, this one didn't make me laugh as much as the others. Scaredy Squirrel would like to enjoy the great outdoors and camping but only from a distance. But plugging in his television requires him to venture through the woods where he encounters a series of challenges. Although he learns his lesson, he returns to his tree with more ideas for camping but no desire to camp outside. The message that "some things are worth the trouble" (unp [...]


    6. My kindergartners are "nutty" for Scaredy Squirrel. Only Pete the Cat can compare in their love for him. When this new book came out, I decided to surprise them and wrapped the cover of the book so they couldn't see it. I picked a student to unwrap the package and the crowd went wild! They were so excited to discover a new Scaredy Squirrel! I just love watching them react so lovingly to a book character. I was just as excited as they were to discover a new one. While SS books sometimes are chall [...]


    7. Scaredy Squirrel is one of my favorite series of books. "Goes Camping" is my Favorite one. It is relly funny. Melanie Watt is the writer of all of the Scaredy Squirrel books. One of my favorite parts is when the beginning says "WARNING! Scaredy Squirrel insists you check your zippers before reading this book.".





    8. Scaredy Squirrel loves camping! in front of his TV. But when his new TV needs a better electrical outlet he's going to have to brave the outdoors to get it plugged in. So he prepares in typical Scaredy Squirrel style.Well, that was unexpected! Of all the things he was preparing for, that was not the one I thought might happen! Another fun adventure with Scaredy Squirrel where he over-plans and over-reacts, but learns a good lesson in the end. No content issues.


    9. This, like all Scaredy Squirrel books, is humorous in ways that kids can relate to. Also, the book has many text features (i.e. maps, charts, even tables) that help tell Scaredy Squirrel's story. A very original idea that will get kids comfortable with features that they'll need to use with content texts in their future (i.e. Science, Social Studies, and Math informational texts).


    10. This variation on the Scaredy Squirrel books managed to keep things different despite the familiar theme from the first one. The panic map was pretty funny, as well as the extension cord. This was only our second Scaredy Squirrel, though, and I'm not sure how many of these you could read without it feeling repetitive.


    11. Genre: Modern FantasyGrade: 2nd-6thScaredy squirrel goes camping, is more a picture book then anything. it is fun to see what all is on the page, and to see what scaredy squirrels interpratations actualy are.


    12. Genre: contemporary realisticReading level: k-1This was a really fun book to help students face their fears. I love how the squirrel has to train for his adventure. It was a cute fun read that I can see using as an easy reader.


    13. I enjoyed this one more that the original scaredy squirrel. His adventures in preparing to camp reminds me a lot of the moms we take camping with our boy scout troop who just can't quite get into it. This is clever and fun.


    14. Genre: Fantasy This book would be great to use with students in Kindergarten and up. A unique feature of this book is there are maps, check lists and diagrams all about camping.



    15. My son received this book from his aunt for his fourth birthday and he loves it. It’s really cute and clever.



    16. Very humorous. A MUST buy. I cannot keep this series on the shelf. It is VERY popular. Recommended for ES. Grades K-3



    17. I could never get tired of Scaredy Squirrel. This time, he decides to go camping. Who, especially in Washington state, could not relate to that? All of the Scaredy Squirrel books have the same layout, just a new problem and new solutions. This time Scaredy is looking out for things like the Three Bears, penguins and quicksand. What I liked about this book is that although Scaredy is a bit over the top, children could easily be taught things such as how to act in the woods, what to look for, how [...]


    18. The first actual book my son learned to read was Scaredy Squirrel at Night by Melanie Watt. I'm still half certain that the only reason he learned to read is because I got tired of reading the same book to him three times at bedtime. Every single night. He's had a favourite author since he knew what an author was, and that author has always been Melanie Watt; so when I got the opportunity to get a copy of Scaredy Squirrel goes Camping by Melanie Watt before anyone else I knew I had to read it wi [...]


    19. Scaredy Squirrel Goes Camping by Mélanie Watt is another great addition to the series of picturebooks about Scaredy Squirrel, and is scheduled for release on April 1 2013. For those readers that are not yet acquainted with this rodent (for shame!), Scardey Squirrel is all about prevention, preparation, and avoidance. He is scared about just about everything, from logical things like getting sprayed by a skunk to the less logical fear of zippers. When he decides he wants to go camping his way, b [...]


    20. Thank you to Kids Can Press and NetGalley for providing me a copy of this book for review!I absolutely LOVE Scaredy Squirrel, so when I saw this book up on NetGalley, I knew I had to read it! I’ve read all of the books in the series and find myself smiling with each one. Scaredy Squirrel is the cutest little character and offers wonderful advice to ALL readers.As usual, the drawings and colours are spot on! Melanie Watt is a wonderful artist and I love all of her renditions of this little squi [...]

    22. You can read this and other reviews at Shut Up and Read.My son and I fell into Scaredy Squirrel's world way back when he was simply afraid to leave his tree. Now the little bugger is taking on camping trips. Good on 'em.The thing I love about Melanie Watt is that she accomplishes two things simultaneously, that contradict each other, but work wonders for her picture books. She uses repetition in her illustration and her written text, but, as well, she never ceases to surprise me with new content [...]


    23. When I mentioned that there weren't many books starring squirrels out there for kids, my coworker recommended this series. There was only this book in the series available at the library that day, but I gave it a read. It's the story of a squirrel who is scared of everything, but he's still a little cious and still wants to have a good life. In this book, he decides he wants to go camping. However, that's filled with lots of scary prospects, so he decides he'll just watch it on television. To pl [...]


    24. Scaredy Squirrel is back! This time he wants to stay far away from camping outside, much happier to watch a TV show ABOUT camping. Unfortunately though, he needs to plug his TV in for it to work. So he has to find an electrical outlet which means heading outside and into the campground. As always, Scaredy plans his trip carefully. He lists what he is scared of, packs important survival supplies, picks out a wilderness outfit to keep himself safe from things like nasty odors and bugs, and has a m [...]
