Martha, a rather shy and timid mouse, lives alone in a tree fort, high above a cottage. She dreams about the mice that live in the cottage, and the friendships she might enjoy…if only she could figure out a way to manage her worries and fears,… and feel confident about making new friends.

Martha the (confident) Mouse, is a story that tackles shyness and fears, and the worry that can be associated with it. Making rational sense of this with children, and teaching them concrete strategies to manage it, can be challenging to say the least!

Martha's simple "idea" is a straightforward and visual strategy, allowing her to manage her feelings of fear, shyness and worry with confidence. It is also about having the courage to take a chance in a situation that may seem completely overwhelming, and the belief that one can find ways to manage and conquer one's fears and trepidations.

About the Author and Illustrator:

Karen Lang brings a varied background and expertise to the Martha the Mouse series.

She is, by original profession, an Occupational Therapist, having worked in adult psychiatry, and brings the creative problem solving approach that OT's are so well trained for.

She is a practicing artist, sharing studio space and inspiration with 4 other very talented artists… And most notably, she is the mother of four very eclectic (now adult) children. This, in and of itself, provides a realistic and practical expertise to the challenges of day to day parenting. She has witnessed first hand some of their struggles with shyness, their fears, and their worries… and while there is never any perfect solution to this challenge, one can learn to manage it more effectively.
