Both of my daughters were eager to read Tori Comes Out of Her Shell. They enjoyed the colorful illustrations and spotting characters from other books in the Good News for Little Hearts series. My seven-year-old seemed to connect with Tori as they share a natural shyness. This book focuses

I loved sharing this book with my little niece, sometimes it is hard for children to fit in. She was giggling at what happened to the teacher, and was happy that the teacher shared her treasured card, her father had given her. Beautiful lessons learned here!
Besides the story with the colorful

illustrations, there are seven pointers to help you child deal with loneliness. Lastly there are pocket bible verses to cut out so your child can have their own.
My little one also noticed some of the animal friends she has become fond of reappear here!
