Overview

Scaredy Squirrel Goes Camping by Mélanie Watt

Scaredy Squirrel is not too comfortable with the idea of camping ... unless it's on his couch! There will be no mosquitoes, skunks or zippers to worry about when he watches a show about the joys of camping on his brand-new TV. But first Scaredy must find an electrical outlet, and that means going into the woods! Will the nutty worrywart's plans prepare him for the great outdoors, or will his adventure end up as a scary story told around the campfire?

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. Do you know what successful writers like Mo Willems, Dr. Seuss, Robert Munch, and Melanie Watt have in common? They all leave my child feeling involved in literature. Melanie Watt's imagery allows children to exclaim the fears of Scaredy Squirrel, trace his path with their hands, laugh as he plays dead. These are things our children crave. Involvement. So, Melanie Watt can keep making these picture books and, as long as they continue to involve my child with a passion for literature, I'll keep recommending you purchase them. This entire series should locate itself in your child's library.

This is a really funny picture book. Squirrel has an inexplicable fear of zippers and penguins, and his camping survival list is hilarious. I read this book to my children and they asked to read it again and again. If you are looking for a humorous picture book to entertain your children, this is a pretty good option. The illustrations are simple, stylized, and fit with the humorous theme of the book. Both my kids and I really enjoyed them.

The book of scaredy squired is very fun because... it tells you to wash your hands and not read the book, if you have this and things like that. Also we can imagine things and there are very silly.
