About the Book

Shimmy is a sweet, sparkling turtle who goes with the flow and has plenty of friends under the sea. Shimmy values her friendships and, though she has lots of creative ideas about fun things to do, she rarely speaks up. What will Shimmy do when she realizes she has something to say? Will she let fear of losing her friends stop her from being her truest self? Shimmy Finds Her Voice helps young children to understand the importance of valuing and appropriately vocalizing their thoughts and feelings
