Sam is a quiet little boy who hates show-and-tell. Just thinking about it makes his stomach hurt. Sam must find a way to conquer his fear and make the most of his turn at show-and-tell. This picture book is great for teaching children about emotions and challenges.
Sam loves trucks and dogs and chocolate, but the only thing people at school know about him is that he does not talk much. He has something great to present for show-and-tell, but he is scared to talk in front of everyone. The colorful, uncluttered illustrations of the animal characters express the shy kid’s awkward feelings with body language that says it all. Sam is a giraffe carrying a backpack and wearing a long striped sweater on his twisting neck as he tries to stay out of the limelight. In contrast, Hippo, in a pink blouse and floral skirt, is delighted to show off her new doll. In the end Sam does a fine presentation; now everyone knows a little bit more about him––and the next time he speaks before the class is even better. The story of the shy giraffe will connect with kids who love those exciting moments, and those who dread messing up. Preschool-Grade 2. --Hazel Rochman
The colorful illustrations cover the pages and depict the characters' emotions in sensitive ways. A comforting story for shy children. --Children's Literature Comprehensive Database Newsletter
