Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Sam is so quiet and withdrawn that no one knows anything about him. Sam loves trucks, chocolate cake, and dogs. No one knows. When the teacher announces the coming of show-and-tell time, Sam thinks of a great thing to bring, but he is scared about showing it. He tries to miss school that day, but his mom knows he is not sick. He tells the teacher he has forgotten his item. She says he can just talk about it. Sam is terrified. He is sure he would mess up. When Sam's turn comes, he pulls a paper from his backpack. He takes a deep breath and shows a picture he has drawn of his new dog. He talks about his dog without fainting or throwing up or crying. Everyone claps. Sam feels better. He starts thinking about what to bring for the next show-and-tell. Sam appears as a giraffe in a tall turtleneck shirt. His teacher is an ostrich and his classmates are other animals. The colorful illustrations cover the pages and depict the characters' emotions in sensitive ways. A comforting story for shy children. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
