You may have thought the only thing to celebrate in October is Halloween. Oh, how wrong you would be. October is the perfect month to celebrate squirrels. That's right, squirrels. Sure, they are rodents but they are cute and industrious as they scamper about in the trees gathering nuts and seeds.
If you want the facts about squirrels -- look in the nonfiction section -- Juvenile 599.32. But if you need a terrific squirrel picture book -- look for Scaredy Squirrel at Night by Melanie Watt. Like other squirrels, Scaredy is cute and industrious -- but he is afraid of pretty much everything!
