Sophie Shyosaurus was a very shy dinosaur. She got embarrassed at parties, when she met someone new, or if she had to stand up and talk in school. Will she ever be able to stop being shy?
Written by Brian Moses, this humorous picture book explores different things that might make children feel shy, for example being asked to speak in class, going to a party or doing something new. Different ways of dealing with shyness are then set out with mum and dad dinosaur explaining how they sometimes are shy too and giving examples of how they try to overcome these feelings.
The clever and funny illustrations, by internationally renowned illustrator, Mike Gordon, bring a light-touch to these stories, helping children to learn about their feelings in a fun and light-hearted way.
Excellent notes for parents and teachers at the back of this book show how to approach these issues with children.
