Say Hi When You're Shy

Say Hi When You’re Shy

illustrated by Sarah Jennings
$13.99

All kids feel shy at times. They might not know what to do or what to say. Or it might take them a while to warm up to people. This picture book helps children overcome shyness with manageable strategies:
  • Plan ahead for parties by practicing what to say or do
  • Invite a friend home to practice with just one person instead of a group
  • Join an activity, team, or club, and ask a friend to join too
  • Build up courage through positive self-talk
It’s okay for kids to feel shy. It often means they are good at observing others and thinking things through before acting. And sometimes kids just want to be on their own for a while. But with these tools, kids can learn to be more confident and comfortable around other children and adults. A section at the back of the book provides additional activity ideas for children and has a note to adults about how to support kids who are shy.
