Description

When Rua begins kindergarten he is very shy, so the teacher introduces him to a kiwi puppet. Kiwis are also shy, she says, and encourages him to play with the puppet. The next day brings a different puppet, the following day another, and each one gives Rua the courage to participate in the other children's activities. Finally, at the end of the week a new girl starts - and she is very shy. Rua takes her to the puppet box...
