My Beautiful Voice by Joseph Coelho
Follow a child who is so shy she doesn't speak.
With the encouragement on an enchanting and magical teacher, she writes a poem. But a poem is meant to be read aloud! She musters all her courage, stands at the front of the class and shows her classmates that she does have a voice.
And her voice is BEAUTIFUL! The perfect way to encourage empathy in young children and show shy children how to feel brave.
