My sister, who is also a special education teacher, introduced me to the character Scaredy Squirrel several years ago. Scaredy Squirrel was written and illustrated by Mélanie Watt. This worrisome, high-anxiety squirrel provides an awesome literature connection to /s/. He’s unwilling to step outside the tree he where he resides. Scaredy squirrel surrounds himself with the comfort of his thoroughly thought-out emergency plan. Emergency management experts say you’re only as good as your plan – Scaredy Squirrel’s plan has one slight flaw. This squirrel-meets-doomsday-prepper children’s picture book is entertaining for both children and adults.
