Shy loves birds. He'd love to watch them fly and hear them sing, but he's only ever read about them in books...until a real bird comes along. He's dying to meet her, but there's just one problem: Shy is, well, shy--so shy, in fact, that he's afraid to leave the gutter of the book. Can Shy overcome his fears and venture out onto the page? This sweetly relatable picture book from the acclaimed Deborah Freedman speaks to every child who's ever felt like hiding instead of facing the daunting world.
Beautiful colors, soft, whimsical illustrations. The cover immediately drew my 5-year-old preschooler in and the clever unfolding of the story allowed a level of suspense that kept us turning the pages to uncover which animal was Shy. My son is shy and afterward we talked about how the character seemed shy to start but, as he’s carried along in the story, we see Shy become brave, and in turn, he got to go on an incredible journey and make a lasting friend! -Amy mother of four (ages 3, 5, 6 and 8) Plano, TX
