I Am Quiet
A Story for the Introvert in All of Us
Author: Andie Powers
Illustrated by: Betsy Petersen
A beautiful story about the vibrant inner life of a quiet (not shy!) child and a valuable resource for parents looking to affirm a child’s introverted nature. Ages 3-7.
Emile is not shy; he is quiet.
While the perception from the outside world is that he is timid and shy, the world inside of Emile's mind is bustling with imagination. As we navigate Emile's school day, we learn that the smallest and most silent moments can sometimes be the strongest. While grownups and even other kids may see Emile as the shy kid who doesn't raise his hand in class, we know that Emile is actually a swashbuckling adventurer, a tamer of beasts, and a friend to everyone he meets.
This story honors and encourages the beauty of knowing ourselves for exactly who we are. Emile’s world shows us that the mind of a quiet child can be as rich, expansive, and bold as that of any other (more extroverted) child.
