    1. These books can be a little wordy and I would recommend for older children (5+). They are, however, a lot of fun to read.

    2. Scaredy Squirrel was making such progress! But now he's having trouble sleeping due to fears of bad dreams. He didn't have any trouble sleeping in the first Scaredy Squirrel book, so something must have happened to trigger these fears of bad dreams. While not a pleasant thing for Scaredy Squirrel, it works out well for Scaredy Squirrel readers since so many children share this fear. I enjoyed comparing the illustration showing the silhouettes of Scaredy Squirrel's fears of ghosts, unicorns, drag [...]

    3. A squirrel can never be to prepared, and in fact, it can never be to overly prepared especially as night comes.

    4. Estos fueron los primeros libros que me inspiraron a leer y ahora leo mucho. Y después de leerlo me preguntaba cuantos libros de aventuras tan buenos como éste habrá en el mundo que todavía no leo yo. Además hasta entrevistaron a Ardilla Miedosa y su entrevista salio en la revista Algarabia Niños.Mega-alerta de SpoilerArdilla miedosa no duerme nunca porque piensa que la pueden lastimar o raptar. Algunas cosas como monstruos, ponys, hadas, dragones, murciélagos y fantasmas, por eso no duer [...]

    5. I just love these Scaredy Squirrel books. This book is the fourth in the series. My favorite, Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend, was the second book. This one ties with book #1: Scaredy Squirrel, which means I really, really liked it. I don’t believe in such things as horoscopes, not even the tiniest bit, but it tickled my funny bone that Scaredy Squirrel and I are both Libras. Interestingly, Watt, the author and illustrator, is a Leo, as revealed in her mini author bio in the inside back cover [...]

    6. Este libro es uno de una serie.La ardilla miedosa le tiene miedo a todo. En cada libro le tiene miedo a una cosa diferente. Y en este le tiene miedo a las pesadillas y por eso no dormía y al final descubre que las pesadillas están solo en su imaginación.La parte que más me gustó fue cuando ardilla miedosa se quedó despierta porque uno de los horóscopos decía: Ponte listo ¡A la media noche todos tus sueños se harán realidad!Ella se queda despierta y hace un plan y cuando cree que sus p [...]

    7. Scaredy Squirrel does not want to sleep because he's afraid of bad dreams featuring for example, unicorns, fairies, and polka-dot monsters. GH said in reference to the polka-dot monsters, "How can you be scared of anything that cute?" Scaredy has an action plan to stay awake so he counts stars, plays cymbals, and scrapbooks. The lack of sleep results in moodiness, hallucinations, poor reflexes (he can't avoid a falling leaf!) etcThe pictures are really hilarious. The book was funny and reaffirms [...]

    8. I found some new books that made me laugh out loud. This is one cautious squirrel. I loved how the author doesn't leave out any details with this furry little guy. He has everything he needs to insure a good nights sleep from safety cones, Do Not Disturb sign hung up-side-down for the bats to cupcakes. He even has a teddy bear that he uses as a decoy. Will he get a good nights sleep. You'll have to read it and find out. Enjoy the ride.

    9. I love any books with rodents as characters, so when I saw it on the shelf, I had to check it out. I love the humor in this book. The author uses a typical fear of children (that scary things will happen when it's time to go to sleep) and takes them to an exaggerated level. The pictures are cartoonish in style which adds to the broad, almost slapstick humor. This is a really cute, funny book!

    10. Third book in this series that I read tonight! Loved all three. I even learned a new word in this one Countdown in French is "le décompte"! I absolutely adore this series!

    13. Scaredy Squirrel offers a way to talk about fears and the roilings of imagination with early elementary. The pictures mesh perfectly with the text making it easier for struggling readers, who can almost read the story with just one or the other.Sime adults will not love the radical literacy format (many pages are not exactly linear) but kids will likely eat it up. note on formatting: I read this on the got epic app and I really liked how it let me zoom in on various areas of the page ensuring th [...]

    14. Fans of Melanie Watt's Scaredy Squirrel series will not be disappointed with this installment. This time, Scaredy is making a plan to combat all the bad things that may come as a result of his bad dreams. The familiar format and plot line make this a good choice for early readers, and older readers will appreciate the humor.

    15. Such a sweet character. Big bold illustrations, simple text but complex format--these are wonderful books that feel chock full of story. Especially fun to read to a group of kids. All the Scaredy Squirrel books are good, and kids never get tired of his antics. There's always another fear to conquer. :-)

    16. The illustrations in this book will delight very young children, but I would not recommend it for two reasons: It contains a horoscope and some of the vocabulary seems too advanced for little tykes. For example: fire extinguisher, hallucinations and poor reflexes.

    17. I don’t enjoy how all-over-the-place these books are, but my son loves it so I guess that’s what’s important.

    18. Lessons learned--bad dreams are in the imagination and nothing horrible happened in the night. But you know Scaredy Squirrel had to plan for and survive the night first.

    19. Didn't feel like going into an explanation of horoscopes at bedtime but appreciated that the cover glowed in the dark.

    20. This worthy volume in the Scaredy Squirrel series delightfully demonstrates how night-time fears are often illusions. My kids loved comparing the shadows to what created them.

    21. Made me chuckle.A fun read for bedtime. The kids like it and I chuckled more than a few times. A story with a lesson.

    22. This book mentions horoscopes - not appropriate content, and not something I feel the need to explain to a first-grader.

    23. This was another cute Scaredy Squirrel story. I liked the nighttime topic and thought it added some really fun scenes. Not my most favorite from the series but still very cute.
