Freddy the Elephant is shy and sensitive because of his size, he tries very hard to fit in. Too hard! He is sensitive, gets hurt easily, and sometimes stutters once in a while. Freddy has great inner potential, but needs to develop more self-assurance. Kids relate to Freddy as he struggles with his problems and recognize that nobody’s perfect.
