Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt is a fun book for toddlers and preschoolers, scaredy squirrel is a little scared of lots of things and never leaves his nut tree. In this fun book with cartoon illustrations, scaredy squirrel is afraid of everything and the unknown and is also prepared. Of course, nothing goes to plan and well…. you have to read the book to find out exactly what happens.

I also like the book as it’s a great book to use early in the year as is introduces the concepts of routines and a visual calendar for the day. Read the book and then together with your child or children create your own together.
