Tarkey and Shyness

1ª edition: April 2016

Formato: 20 x 15 cm.

Binding: Paperback .

Pages: 36


SHYNESS is the feeling that makes you believe everyone is looking at you because you do something wrong. It wants you to be invisible, but you have to be strong and avoid it. Tarkey has an assessment to make for school and he is going to manage to overcome his SHYNESS looking for “The most important”.


Naming what we feel is a way of getting to know oneself and, therefore, a way to mature. Reading the titles in this collection, parents and teachers will have useful tools to talk to their children and them identifying themselves with some of the characters, so they begin to overcome some aspects of their feelings which may become counterproductive behaviour. Also, each tale is a funny story which the children will enjoy reading from the beginning to the end. Each book describes the feeling and its opposite. Afterwards, a story is told: it begins in the real world, it follows in a world of fantasy where it lays an answer to the problems of the main character and, finally, it goes back to the real world where the conflict is solved. In the last page you will find a funny recipe to overcome negative feelings.
