A boy notices everything around him that can be shy--a seedling slow to sprout, a marker timid to let its color out. But no one accuses objects of being too shy. On a seaside stroll home from school with his older brother, the boy doesn't feel shy at all. Because, like the ocean tides, sometimes we're shy, and sometimes we're like big, booming waves with a lot to say at the end of the day.

A lyrical exploration of situational shyness, and how sometimes inanimate objects can be shy too.

Download the free Sometimes Shy educator's guide to invite kids to consider the ways they are both shy and bold in their own lives. 


"The colorful, sun-washed illustrations set diverse cartoon figures against the bright background of a seaside village and the narrator's cozy house. . . . An encouraging, subtle reminder not to be so quick to make snap judgments."
