This book tells Benny and his parents' story and how they worked together in beating Benny's social fears and anxiety. Their journey was not easy, and along the way, they had to overcome one challenge after another. The result was a dramatic change in Benny's ability to cope with his shyness. Today Benny can communicate with cubs and adults easily; he can speak in class and has a rich social life.
