    Great list! My son loves the Scaredy Squirrel books. There are several different titles in the series. The first page always gives a direction that must been done before the book can be read (check under the bed, wash hands with soap, etc.). Each page has a different layout so it’s not just text/picture format. Fun times for sure!
