Extreme shyness is not always seen as a serious problem, but research tells us that shy children are more likely to have difficulty in school, are more susceptible to depression, and even have more health problems than other children. Early intervention is the key to helping shy children reach the social and academic milestones that can shape their sense of self-worth.
This engaging story is about Emmy, who is “quiet as a mouse” in school. In fact, the other children call her “little mouse,” a name that only makes her feel worse. Emmy thinks that everyone is mad at her for being so quiet, until a counselor helps her parents and teacher understand that Emmy needs gentle encouragement, not sarcasm or teasing.
Learning to face her fears one step at a time, Emmy finds that although sometimes she is still quiet, other times she is as talkative as any of her new friends.
