I have two children who constantly blame the other when they get into trouble. I purchased this book to reinforce taking responsibility for their own actions. My son and daughter loved the characters and illustrations. The examples are typical of children's daily interactions both at home and at school. This book is a homerun on teaching that the "he did this, she did that so I did it back"... is not acceptable.

The cover of the delightful children's book, I Double Dare You, is perfect for building anticipation. Judy Lehman's witty cover illustration provides a subtle hint of the excitement contained within. I found myself wanting to pull back the brown bag cover to see more.

This story is truly a wonderful blend of words and illustrations that present the reader with an interesting concoction of a serious subject and laugh-out-loud humor (Just wait until you see the expression on Bucky's face when he jumps off the bridge!).

Dana Lehman has definitely created another winning book that continues the adventures of Sammy the Squirrel. With the onset of the story, Sammy is already nervous about the antics of his cousins, appropriately named Silly and Sassy. Obviously, his fears were well-founded, as the two cousins embark on an escapade that includes sword fighting and bridge jumping. Yet, by the end of this tale, all is well and everyone in Walnut Grove has learned a valuable lesson.

Lehman's story is great for school-aged children as her tale reinforces the need to take responsibility for one's own actions and, just as important, that it is okay to say NO.

For parents and teachers, I Double Dare You also provides a wonderful extension activity at the end of the story, with Lehman's inclusion of comprehension questions as a follow-up.

I look forward to the next animal adventure in Walnut Grove.

Sammy the squirrel was all excited that his cousins Silly and Sassy were coming for a visit to Walnut Grove. He remembered they could be a little mischievous but hopefully they would not cause any trouble.

When Silly and Sassy arrived Sammy introduced them to his friends and then they all started playing games. Sure enough right off the bat Silly and Sassy were playing around and one of them got hurt. They admitted that they knew they should not have been playing a game that could possibly cause harm to someone. Sassy admitted that Silly dared her. Then she apologized for hurting Silly and they were off to play another game.

As Bucky and Silly took off together Silly decided to not only dare Bucky the beaver to do something Bucky knew he should not do, Silly double dared Bucky. Bucky took the double dare and it put him in great danger.

If you would like to find out just what it was that Silly dared Bucky to do, grab a copy of the book and find out all the trouble Silly and Sassy caused at Walnut Grove.

What would you do if someone double dared you to do something that you knew you should not do?

In this story the author teaches children to go with their own instincts when choosing between right and wrong. She also emphasizes to never dare anyone to do something the other person is uncomfortable doing.

I have now read the first two books in the series and they both teach good values.

The illustrations will stir the imagination while reading about the characters as they play games and yes get themselves into some bad situations.

I highly recommend this book.

I Double Dare You does a good job of teaching kids that they have to take responsibility for their own actions and they can't just blame some other kid for their own dangerous or stupid actions and behaviour just because they applied a bit of peer pressure such as saying I dare you or double dare you. The storyline itself does a great job at teaching this lesson although the very similar names of Silly, Sassy, and Sammy gets a bit confusing as to who is which. However the story also teaches them it's okay to annoy native wildlife (I'm assuming the racoons, squirrels and beavers are supposed to be human just in animal bodies) such as grabbing frogs from the river and forcing them to race for their own entertainment. In fact the author further condones this message with their questions at the end Have you ever had frog races like Sammy and his friends? Did your frogs win or lose? Did you have fun? Not a good thing to do for the frogs welfare and also dangerous for the friends as to what other animals they could come across that have better means of defending themselves than the frogs or dangers such as falling in the river, especially since one can't really swim.

I also found the illustrations to be a bit average. Granted painting like the artists have would be a lot harder and more time consuming than your standard illustrations but some of the illustrations just looked blurred or smudged in parts and others just look really average. If this was an art project the pictures would make more sense but in a children's picture book, they are not really up to par. To the publishers credit the book is formatted properly for Kindle devices with the words and text appearing together on the one page like they would a hard copy book. Unfortunately this has yet to become the norm for Kindle picture books.
