Two Shy Pandas

Written by Julia Jarman
Illustrated by Susan Varley
Age range: Preschool through 1st grade.
Recommended for: A sweet read for children who feel shy in situations where they’re expected to make new friends. Provides the perspective that there are probably lots of other children out there who feel the same way as the child reading the book and who would love to play if the child were willing to take a risk and ask.
