Goodreads Synopsis:

From costume ideas to trick-or-treating strategies, Scaredy Squirrel helps readers plan for the spookiest night of the year! Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Halloween is the second in a series of nutty safety guides featuring everyone's favorite worrywart.
Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Halloween is a children’s book for…well…what it says, preparing for Halloween. I love Halloween, so I wanted to see what this book had to offer and it is super cute. Scaredy walks kids through how they should plan, but also be safe on Halloween. It has diagrams and maps and is very fun. However, I think there is a little bit of disconnect, there are a lot of things that children may not understand and I think are geared toward parents. But that is the fun of it, that reading it with your child and pointing safety out is a good thing, especially for a crazy, candy-filled night like Halloween.

The pictures were cute and colorful and the examples throughout were fun and relatable for the most part. Overall I think a child would love to read this book and dwell on Halloween and its goodies.

  1. A book about Halloween safety is probably good. A good discussion point. I'm not the biggest fan of buying holiday themed books, but this might be good to get from the library shortly before Halloween.
