'Tis the season for worrying, planning, decorating, wrapping, entertaining, carolling and, worst of all, fruitcake! Scaredy Squirrel returns with a quirky safety guide filled with practical tips and nutty step-by-step instructions to help readers prepare for a perfect Christmas. A fun-filled guide sure to appeal to all the Scaredies out there!


I love Scaredy Squirrel's 1st self titled book, so I was excited when I saw the Christmas book on Netgalley.

In this safety guide Scaredy lays out a plan for getting ready for Christmas. He even shows you how to build a "to code" gingerbread house.

If you love squirrel's that are scared of EVERYTHING and don't mind reading a how to Christmas guide that shows you the pros and cons of Christmas and all it's events like decorating and gift wrapping then Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Christmas is a fun holiday read to share with the kiddos.

On Christmas night at the North Pole, Santa's youngest son looks to use his father's high-tech operation for an urgent mission.


I grabbed this one from Netflix and it was awesome! It was enjoyed by me and my 6 year old son. They humor was on the lines of Shrek and Despicable Me. Funny for adults while still safe for little kids.

The movie follows the Christmas family around. Santa is on what is to be his last "mission" before handing off the title of Santa to his youngest son, Steven. But something happens and one gift gets left behind. So all of the North Pole is turned up side down when Arthur the youngest son of Santa tries to deliver the toy to the child it was meant for.

Arthur gets help from Grand Santa, and he is the start of the movie! Funny old man that's the Grandfather of the family and retired Santa. He is worth watching the movie and he is the reason I give this movie a 5 star candy cane rating.

This all British cast will have you laughing so if you are looking for a family Christmas movie with humor you need to check out Arthur Christmas this year!
