Decent book, with definite religious overtones
By Christopher R. Mause - December 6, 2012
Time will tell if the lessons in this book sink in with my excruciatingly shy 5 1/2 year-old. It was perfect for his reading level.
One thing that I didn't see called out in the description or the 1 other review is that this book has a Christian religious overtone to it. For for my family, that meant most of my son's questions went back to God and Jesus and Heaven and such (which he's trying to wrap his little head around), rather than the real purpose of this book, which was to address his shyness. For other people, it might come as a surprise if your religious beliefs don't align with the author's.
Cannot get enough of this series!

I buy a lot of these series of books for my 7 year old. There is one for almost every emotion and many situations. Love books with a message especially if they have a good story line.

was sorely disappointed in this book. We have a number of these books for our daughter who is shy, so I thought it can't hurt to add another - open the book and the first line "God made us all the way...."
can't we do a single thing anymore in this country without talking about god. Thanks - but you can keep your religion out of my kids reading.
