Synopsis

Overcoming Shyness: Leave Me Alone! by Pat Thomas

This wonderful picture book helps children who become worried in social situations to overcome their fear of new places and people. It encourages confidence whilst also reassuring introverted children that it is fine to spend time alone too. It explores ways your child can practice social interactions to help build confidence and explains to more confident children the importance of being kind and patient to their more introverted peers. Part of a superb series of information books that give advice and promote interaction between children, parents, and teachers on a wide variety of personal, social and emotional issues. They make excellent tools for classroom discussions or parent and child discussion at home.
