Then something bad happened at a nearby school: strangers got into the school and a lot of other little turtles like Stan got hurt. Stan is scared that the same thing may happen to him, so he retreats into his shell and becomes afraid of everything from the dark to going to school to getting kidnapped. However, with the help of his mom and dad, as well as his doctor, Stan learns that its okay to be afraid, but that he cant let fear rule his life. Sometimes bad things happen: people get hurt or the lights go out, and Stan knows he must warn the other turtles when he spots strangers in his school. Stan is no longer a timid turtle, but a brave turtle. An important message of strength in the face of fear, Stan the Timid Turtle will help small children scared by the recent tragedies in Newtown and Boston find strength in themselves.
