Squiggly just wants to fit in, but it's hard when he looks so different from the other squirrels at school. And the class bully, Archie, doesn't make it any easier. But, with the help of his good friends and some great adults, Squiggly learns that being different doesn't have to be hard---it can be fun! Squiggly realizes just how special he is, how great making new friends can be, and that he doesn't have to look like anyone else, he just has to look like Squiggly!
Dawn Clark's love of reading began when her Grandma Kate gave her an illustrated children's Bible---a love she passes on to children in her work as an educational aide and librarian. Dawn spent many hours with her own children, Cory and Katie, reading books every night at bedtime and making up stories all day long. With her two children now in college, Dawn has transformed those cherished family memories into the story of Squiggly Gets Glasses. Dawn lives in Massillon, Ohio, with her husband, Tim, and when she's not writing, she can be found taking walks, riding her bike, and spending quality time with her family. Dawn is a member of a writer's group and is working on Squiggly's next exciting adventure.
We all worry about fitting in. Squiggly is no different. But after getting blue glasses. His confidence soars. I want to be like Squiggly.
Squiggly Gets Glasses
Squiggly didn’t quite fit in. When he tried to climb trees and play with the other squirrels, he always lost his balance and fell down. Squiggly didn’t like being different. He wanted to be like everyone else.
