    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.

    When I read the book to each class, I included a brief discussion about ADD and ADHD. We talked about the differences and quite a few kids raised their hands to tell me that they have been diagnosed as either. Each page took approximately 2 minutes as we discussed Squirrely's behavior and whether it was acceptable or not. When the story ended, I explained to each class that Mrs. Tina is just like Squirrely. They all looked so shocked....wondering what I meant by that. Here I was sitting still, reading, and keeping the class in check. I further explained that Mrs. Tina has ADD and takes medicine every morning with breakfast. And because of that medicine, I'm able to focus, stay on track, and do more than one thing at a time. I passed on Brenda's name and information to the school counselor and librarian. They both want copies of this amazing book to share with family, friends, and students.

    Thank you Brenda for bringing this topic to light. Everyone needs to understand that ADD and ADHD are not naughty words, and should not be thought of as taboo. Awareness is key!

    “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 constantly moving and his mind is going one-hundred and two miles per hour. This makes simple tasks like getting dressed and paying attention in class an adventure. 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 his parents unconditionally love him. Brenda Lochinger creates a loveable and fun character that children will love. The story is told in rhyme and is very upbeat.


    The book is illustrated by Jeffrey Duckworth. He skillfully creates colorful and engaging pictures that will grab your children’s attention.

    We all know a Squirrely in our life a child that just won’t sit still and is constantly getting into trouble. It may be a child that just gets into things here and there or they may have AD/HD disorder. This book would be a wonderful book to share with children that have AD/HD. They could relate to the protagonist and the overall theme of parent’s unconditional love. A wonderful thing to note about this book is that: A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this book will be donated to organizations specializing in the treatment and counseling for AD/HD.

    My two year old wiggles and squirms around sometimes during story time, but he sat still during this story. He really liked Squirrely and laughed at his antics. There is potential for this character to grow, learn and experience many wonderful adventures. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

    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 much he moves or plays his family still loves him very much.

    I think most parents with children who suffer from ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) can relate with Squirrely. This book is a great book to share with children that have ADHD. It will help them understand their situation better.


    FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

    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 treatment and counseling for ADD/ADHD.

    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. :)

    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

    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.
