thanks for writing to health care magic.

children in this age group normally are bubbling with energy and very playful.

any deviation from the same is abnormal.

There could be many causes for this.

does her palms and soles or tongue look pale.

If so the cause could be anemia.

a simple blood test will help in identifying the diagnosis.
