Booktalk #1

Scaredy Squirrel is afraid of just about everything.  So he knows the safest thing to do is just stay putin his nut tree and not risk the unknown.  But what happens when a bee enters the scene?  And he is not part of the plan?

Booktalk #2

Scaredy Squirrel is afraid of LOTS of things from germs to green Martians, so he never leaves his tree. All kinds of protections like parachutes (just in case!) are kept inside his tree if danger should ever come to him. Danger does come in the form of a killer bee, and when Scaredy drops his trusty emergency kit, lots of surprises ensue!  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards Program, 2009-2010)
