Shy E Likes to Hide by Dolores Stedman is an educational storybook that will help children become familiar with the final 'e' concept in a fun and interesting way. The vowels A,E,I,O,U are standing in a line and they are going to play a game. Take a look and see how it is done. E does not talk but he likes to play games. E is being quiet and the others don't mind. The letters line up to form MAN and shy E comes out and makes it MANE. CAN has no E, and will E join his friends in this? E is always silent and makes changes in the words silently.

Shy E Likes to Hide by Dolores Stedman is a wonderful book that teaches children new words and how the letter E can change words and their meanings silently by using him at the end. The rhyming verses give the story a good fluidity and pace and make it entertaining to young readers. The illustrations are as charming as the concept and give clarity to the author's idea. What I liked mostly was that the pictures and the words give E a very distinct personality of his own. Learning cannot be more fun than this. This book can be introduced in classrooms and homes to enhance the vocabulary of young readers and help them realize the power of the silent E in a word and how it can create an entirely new word with a change in the meaning.
