Halloween Safety with Scaredy Squirrel

Halloween is right around the corner and the library is full of good reading treats, including books about my favorite worry wart, Scaredy Orville Squirrel, aka Scaredy Squirrel. Scaredy is the main character in a series of children’s books written and illustrated by Melanie Watt. In addition to winning several awards, in 2011 Scaredy starred in his very own cartoon series. Scaredy’s initials S.O.S. are a tell-tale sign of his personality. Scaredy dislikes danger, making eye contact and germs—just to name a few. He is a master at identifying his fears, avoiding them when possible, and developing a contingency plan; which usually involves an emergency kit and playing dead till the threat passes.

Are you prepared?
