Remember when the idea of crossing the yard to say hello to someone felt like trying to walk through a river of Jell-O wearing lead boots? Finding the courage to do something new is hard for adults, let alone little ones. So how do we help our kids find confidence in themselves? We introduce them to Martha the (confident) Mouse, of course. The story follows a sweet mouse living in a tree who longs to join the other mice residing in the rafters of the house below. But what if they don’t like her? This adorably illustrated tale, written by mom and Occupational Therapist, Karen Lang, is designed to help children understand the nature of shyness, and gives a fun resolution on how to tackle the problem. Martha will get your kids skipping across the yard to make new friends in no time. ($20, available at www.marthathemouse.ca.)
