Getting to school can be a difficult task if you are shy.

Ask Leonard Shrew!

Little Leonard finds it hard to make his voice heard. This sometimes means he misses out on some of the exciting experiences life has to offer: tasty seed snacks, playing games with the other children at free time, or being the first in the class to answer a question he knows he has the answer to. But when Leonard sees a friend being picked on by a bully in the playground can he find the courage to speak out and save the day?

  • Parallel English and Spanish text
  • Strong message to encourage self-awareness, confidence, compassion, and empathy
  • Interactive sections - Little ones can encourage Leonard to speak by shouting “Speak Out, Leonard!” 
  • Beautifully illustrated artwork


With Speak Out, Leonard! children will develop a second language while understanding the importance of using your voice to speak out against injustice. 

Al pequeño Leonard le cuesta un poco expresarse y se pierde algunas experiencias del día a día cómo jugar con otros niños en el recreo, comerse el almuerzo o ser el primero en dar la respuesta correcta en clase. ¿Vencerá su timidez para ayudar a un amigo en apuros? 

¡Habla, Leonard! es un cuento perfecto para que los niños se diviertan leyendo en dos idiomas mientras aprenden la importancia de expresar inconformidad ante las injusticias.
