Ask me my name?


Want me to play?


Call on me in class?


I say nothing and hope no one will see me. I call that playing possum. It's my way of being shy.


Blossom wants to speak up in class, and she wants to spend time with friends at lunch and at recess. But whenever she tries, she freezes up and plays possum instead! Can Blossom get past her shyness and have fun?


Includes a Note to Parents and Other Caregivers by Julia Martin Burch, PhD, with more information on the cognitive-behavioral strategies Blossom uses to cope with shyness and ways to encourage your own shy child.

“Unreservedly recommended for children ages 4 to 8 and will prove to be an enduringly popular and appreciated addition to family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library picture book collections.” —Midwest Book Review
