There was a boy named Ty,
who was very shy.
Friends, he had none.
Ty was too scared to talk to anyone.
At times, Ty would cry
because he was so shy.
One day the teacher said a project each child must do.
Ty decided to do something that he knew.
What project did Ty do at school
that the other children thought was really cool?
Did the children want to know more about Ty after what he had done?
Did this help Ty become less shy to everyone?
