Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Christmas {with Giveaway}

by NancyT

Now that Scaredy Squirrel has made a friend, had a birthday party, and survived the dark and the beach, he takes on Christmas (check out some of the links if you aren’t familiar with Scaredy’s previous books).

Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Christmas: A Safety Guide for Scaredies is a safety guide for the cautious and practical people in your life.  After a short quiz to determine if this guide is for you, Scaredy provides the usual safety items needed to tackle the holidays, along with a plan for encountering the usual holiday obstacles. While a hair dryer and a hockey helmet may not be your usual safety items, well, Scaredy isn’t your usual squirrel, and you never know when you’ll need to fend off an Abominable Snowman or avoid getting knocked out by ice storm pellets.

Each chapter tackles a different area of potential Christmas difficulty, such as Christmas decorations, holiday sweets, and shopping for gifts.  My favorite chapter is the one on Christmas characters, as Scaredy points out the positives and negatives of Santa and his team.

Ever the realist, Scaredy includes tips, such as everything red or green is not safe to decorate with (such as dynamite and bullfrogs), pros and cons to holiday sweets (fruitcake lasting for decades is listed as both a pro and a con), gift ideas for the different personality types in your life, and the importance of having fun during the holidays, something often overlooked in all of the holiday craziness.

If someone in your life needs a guide for scaredies, then you can enter to win! These books are the type of picture book that are appreciated by kids of all ages, including adults. Follow the instructions below to enter to win. We’ll announce the winner in our book review column on December 10.

The winner of Make the Bread, Buy the Butter is Idaho Jill.

We LOVE Scaredy Squirrel books, when we bought our first one we couldn’t believe how hilarious it was on two different levels – a basic level kids could get and then another level that adults could appreciate. :-) I think our favorite is the very first book of the series plus the Scaredy Squirrel at the Beach.
