5.5 / 7.0

With a simple but heartfelt story and engaging illustrations, this is a great book to start a discussion with a child about feeling shy or scared. Young readers will relate to Sam’s fear of being laughed at but also the increase in confidence he gains when he dares to do something that scares him.
