All little ones are shy during their lives and this book will help them learn that it is ok to be shy; but don't let your inner dream die as a result!

Be courageous like Katy and let your inner dancer soar!

I first read this book after looking for some ballet books for my daughter! She loved watching the little ballerinas go into thier class next to her gym class. She loved this book and twirled and moved!

Catherine likes this book a lot. It was a good launching point for a shyness/nervousness discussion for my shy little girl. Now: "Sometimes I shy like Katy Duck."

Katy loves to dance and twirl. Her mother notices that, and enrolls her in dance class. Katy is scared. The teacher has her dance as a butterfly, and she loves it.
