Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Christmas - Melanie Watt

Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Christmas: A Safety Guide for ScarediesSummary:  Holiday Greetings!  Here's my Christmas guide, in a nutshell.  

'Tis the season for worrying, planning, decorating, buying, wrapping, party entertaining, caroling and fruitcake re-gifting!!!

Therefore I, Scaredy Squirrel, have put together a collection of helpful safety tips and step-by-step instructions to guide you through common holiday obstacles such as avalanches, shopping for difficult individuals and encountering the Abominable Snowman.  (Image from Barns and Noble and summary from back of the book.)

My Review:  "WARNING! Scaredy Squirrel insists that everyone put on mittens before reading this Safety Guide!"  If' you've read anything by Scaredy Squirrel, this quote sums up all of his books.

I have a daughter with anxiety.  She relates to Scaredy Squirrel and can laugh at herself through his books.  Christmas is a big holiday--there are so many things to worry about.  So many things that everyone expects to be done correctly.  And there's always at least one thing that will inevitably go wrong.  Don't you fear; Scaredy Squirrel has you covered. It's set up in chapters, but it's a very fast read with lots of pictures.  Need to explain Santa?  It's in there.  Need ideas for all kinds of people?  Scaredy Squirrel has 15 types of people with 3 ideas each.  Need help dressing for a holiday occasion?  That's in there too.  And my favorite: "If all else fails, play dead!"

Rating: 3.5 Stars

Sum it up:  Got an anxious kid?  This is worth the $$ to prepare for the holidays.
