language
English
3.72 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Everyone's favorite overly-cautious squirrel is back with tips for surviving Christmas safely. There's no plot or storyline to follow. Just a parody of a "how-to" type book with everything from safe Christmas games, to safe Christmas apparel, to safe Christmas decorating. Grea...

review 1: My kids love the "Scaredy Squirrel" series as much as I do. I recommend it as a just for fun and of course as a book about courage and overcoming your fears. Also, Scaredy Squirrel is very organized- very! He has everything timed down to the minutes, so for student with Autism it...

review 1: Scaredy Squirrel goes Camping by Melanie Watt – I am never disappointed reading a Scaredy Squirrel book. Neither are any of my students! Cannot wait to get this on the shelf. I know I won’t see it for the rest of the school year once it is released to the students! *Warning, if y...

review 1: Scaredy Squirrel is adorable, and I loved this book -- and if you are old enough to truly read this independently you will too! BUT, the story is over the heads of the intended audience of 4 to 8-year-olds, and it was a lot of work for this librarian to read it to them and get t...

review 1: Scaredy Squirrel has decided that night time is way too scary. Scaredy sees a horoscope that tells him all his dreams will come true -- what a horrifying thought! Scaredy sets up elaborate traps to make sure his nightmares stay away. They seem to fail miserably, and he has to pla...

review 1: I will admit I had to look up some words from this book while reading. I think that speaks to possible vocabulary lessons for Spanish language learners (as opposed to my limited Spanish vocabulary, right?). My favorite effect of sleeplessness was a lack of reflexes where Scaredy ...

language
English

review 1: Chester's Masterpiece by Melanie Watt is a delightful and humorous battle of wills for control over the story. Chester has decided that he is going to replace Melanie in her picture book making endeavors. By cleverly stealing some important materials, Chester has hijacked the boo...

review 1: I did not enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. I had high hopes since we are talking about Melanie Watt here. The book is fun, but it cannot compare to the scaredy squirrel books. In this book, the rabbit is talking to the reader about what took him so long and that he i...
J'Ai Tout Un Livre Pour Toi! (2009)
language
English

review 1: Unlike most of Melanie Watt books, "Have I Got a Book for You!" is an ideal choice for reading aloud to groups of children. Chester and Scaredy Squirrel's humour are reliant on the many small details in the illustrations. That sort of thing doesn't play well in a crowd. What's gr...

review 1: This is a sequel, and is a very funny book. This book is aimed at Early Years and Key Stage One. The illustrations and the layout of some of the text are very appealing and engaging. I really liked reading this story to the whole class and seeing their reactions to parts of the b...

review 1: Well, I can see why Scaredy Squirrel wants to stay in his tree, even though I know some kids who like having ponies at their party. But they're kids, not squirrels, and ponies might step on squirrels, so I can see his point.Anyway it turns out he had a LOT of friends and he had a...

review 1: Horn Book (Spring 2009)In this sequel to the equally meta Chester, the humility-challenged cat returns with his red marker to contradict everything Watt writes in her story about him. The corresponding illustrations (one looks as though it's been Scotch-taped back together) offer...

review 1: The fifth book in Melanie Watt’s Scaredy Squirrel series, Scaredy Squirrel Has a Birthday Party, is quite similar to the third book, Scaredy Squirrel Goes to the Beach: Scaredy is quite certain that he would prefer to spend his birthday celebrations alone in the comfort and safet...
