Cheyenne is a very shy little girl. One day, she walks into her kindergarten class and sees a teacher she has never seen before. Her regular teacher, Mrs. Bells, is out sick and Mr. Brown is substituting for her. It’s a good thing that Mrs. Bells let Mr. Brown know just how shy Cheyenne is, so during attendance, Mr. Brown lets her know that she doesn’t have to be shy around him.
Author Nikki Yochum lives in Wasilla, Alaska, where she enjoys being a stay-at-home mom. Since she was also very shy as a child, she wishes to help other children overcome their shyness and live up to their full potential. She has written another Cheyenne story in which Cheyenne must stand in front of the class to present her show and tell, and is working on a third installment of the series.
