Sophie is shy. As she and her mother visit the bakery, Sophie really wants a crocodile cream puff but she just can't get her mouth to say, "Hello." The bakery lady gives her one anyway.
That's what happens to her everywhere she goes. She just can't get herself to say her words out loud.
We all know the feeling of being tongue tied or just overwhelmed to the point you can't bring yourself to speak. It happens to so many little ones.
Happily, Grandma has a few tricks up her sleeve to teach her little granddaughter she can rely on herself and speak up when she really needs to.
