Summary
An empowering picture book for all kids that demonstrates to children that they can be real-life superheroes and that all kids have what it takes to be brave.

Superheroes seek adventure, never give up, and stay calm when others are
afraid. Superheroes are brave. But they aren't the only ones.

Kids are brave every day. When they are told they are too little, but accomplish something big. When they check for monsters under the bed, just in case. When they face something uncertain, whether a thunderstorm or a hospital visit. When they stand up for what's right, even when it means facing consequences.

Like superheroes, brave kids can save the world, just by being brave.

Thoughtful text from Stacy McAnulty paired with vibrant illustrations from Joanne Lew-Vriethoff encourage kids to be brave in all the ways they can: trying new things, speaking their mind, confronting bullies, and more. This book will inspire kids to follow their hearts and to have courage, no matter the situation.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "On the heels of McAnulty and Lew-Vriethoff's Beautiful (2016) comes Brave, which, like its predecessor, takes a much-revered human quality and redefines it for today's children. The brave kids in this book come in all colors, shapes, and styles. They sport capes and glasses and freckles and wheelchairs. Bravery also comes in many forms, and every double-page spread displays a different courageous act: saving a cat from a tree, leading ducklings across a stream on stepping stones, making bold moves in chess, getting back in the game after a scrape, apologizing for a mistake, and standing up for each other, just to name a few. While the message is that all individual children can be brave, they are also brave together: comforting each other in a storm, picking up garbage to protect the environment, or nursing a sick pet. Adults are part of the equation, too, whether standing by or helping out. This serious and heartfelt message is softened and reinforced by colorful illustrations, with pen-and-ink lines adding playful details.--Chaudhri, Amina Copyright 2017 Booklist"
