Hi! I’m Bug!

I’m really smart and thoughtful. I’m also cautious and a little scared to try new things. I know that change is a good thing, but sometimes, it makes me afraid.

If you know a child who’s a bit shy like me, here are some helpful Tools from the Kimochis® Educator’s Tool Kit: Early Childhood Edition to help with self-talk.
