Scaredy Squirrel Visits the Doctor (Hardcover)
Scaredy Squirrel is exactly the character kids need today -- a little bit anxious, a lot adorable and totally lovable. Join Scaredy on a hilarious adventure as he learns to brave the doctor for a check-up Scaredy Squirrel keeps himself in peak physical condition. He exercises, eats a balanced diet, sings opera (to keep his lungs in shape, of course) and brushes his teeth. You might think it's to stay fit, but no -- he'd rather keep a healthy distance from the doctor's office After all, who'd want to expose themselves to the the aches and pains of pricking, poking and squeezing? It's a prescription for disaster Scaredy can't avoid the doctor forever though, and when he realizes that he needs to make a quick visit to Dr. Vet to get his health certificate, he does whatever it takes to keep safe while he waits at the clinic . . . including covering himself in bubble wrap. Things don't go according to plan, and Scaredy ends up discovering that his doctor's visit leaves him feeling better than ever.
