Fear of social gatherings
My 3.5 year old granddaughter is afraid of entering rooms with a lot of people (not strangers), she will hide her eyes and not socialize at all.  She also hides when she thinks someone will call attention to her (i.e. a party had a pinata, she hid because she didn't want anyone to clap when she tried to break it).  She also has just recently stopped kissing (acknowledging) her grandfathers and uncles.  She can totally ignore them and not look at them.  

I feel this is an important issue to address.  Do you think she is acting normally?

It is possible that your granddaughter is suffering from social anxiety.  You might wish to google phrases as "childhood anxiety" or "social anxiety in children" or similar words/phrases to read more about this issue.   One question - does she speak to strangers or just "hide behind someone's back"?
