I volunteer at a local elementary school. These 1st graders can be a bit...well, squirrely. I have been fortunate enough to know Brenda for many years and received a copy of this book. LOVE IT! I took it to the school with me on my volunteer day. All three 1st grade classes loved it! When the kids start getting distracted and/or act up, all I have to do is ask "Where is squirrel behavior accepted?" They quiet down and remind me how much they enjoyed this book.

“I’m Squirrely” is the first book in a series written by new author Brenda Lochinger. The book introduces children to a wiggly and adorable Squirrel that won’t stand still.

He is a dreamer and his brain won’t shut off, he is constantly thinking even when he is supposed to be sleeping. No matter what trouble Squirrel gets into ...more

My Review: In this book, the author introduces us to Squirrely who gets distracted easily as he likes to run, laugh and play. He is constantly moving and grooving without freezing. He finds it hard to sit still as he has so much going on in his mind even when it comes to bedtime he just sit and think.

He never pays attention in class and gets the answers to the questions wrong. He sometimes gets upset and is always struggling to listen. Sometimes he wishes he can just focus. But no matter how mu
This is my Condense Review:
I received this book from the author. I read it and it was every cute and funny. I rhymes every so often. The story tell about how he is named "I'm Squirrely".

I love how the pictures are funny to look at and the story itself is funny. I was laughing almost every time I read the book. It tell how he acts in school and what he does at home. It show just how he loves moving and Grooving.

I'm Squirrely! is a charming book with adorable illustrations, of a young squirrel that wiggles a lot. Squirrely is a young fella with ADHD. Sqirrely gives us insight of what it is like to have ADHD. Their minds race onto something new before they can even focus on their first thought. Brenda has done a wonderful job helping others understand what it is like to have ADHD & is generously donating a portion of her proceeds from the sale of I'm Squirrely! to organizations specializing in the treatm ...more

This is the cutest book, I have a child that suffers from ADHD and this book was fantastic for her. Or any child, Squirrely loves to wiggle, be himself and everyone loves him for him! What a wonderful way to tell your kids not everyone is the same, not fitting in the "mold" is too be embraced. You too can be well liked. My family loves this book we are going Squirrely over it!!! MUST READ

I got 'I'm Squirrely' for my daughter's Easter basket and she LOVED IT! The first time, I read it with her. She really enjoyed the illustrations and the entire story. I could tell by her comments that she was relating to the story. As soon as we got done reading she said: "This is a really great book! The Easter bunny did great!" ... and then wanted to read it again. :)

As a school librarian, I loved this book. The story plot was believable, and the illustrations gave the humorous text an added pleasure. I can't wait for the next one from this up and coming author for children.

I'm Squirrely by Brenda Lochinger
Illustrated very colorful children's book.
Rhyming every two sentences per page the squirrel tells us and shows us about squirrel things as if he is a person that
goes to school and has to get dressed himself and other daily activities.

Adorable storyline, animated illustrations, a perfect description for the "wiggle worm" in all of us. Not to often does one read a story about children that are not cookie cutter. A cute story for every child of all ages. Definitely a must have to add to your library.
