What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes, the nationally bestselling and celebrated creator of Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, Owen, and Kitten’s First Full Moon, Shelia Rae, the Brave is a warm, humorous, and loving story of sibling sympathy and support. Just because Sheila Rae is older, she doesn’t always know better!

“I am very brave,” Sheila Rae said, patting herself on the back. She wasn’t afraid of anything—not thunder, not lightning, not the big black dog at the end of the block. And when she wanted to walk home a new way and Louise wouldn’t, she called her sister a scaredy-cat and set out alone. But all the bravado in the world failed to help when Sheila Rae found herself lost. Luckily, her sister was not far behind.

“Children will love it.”—School Library Journal

Sheila Rae is brave, even fearless, taking great risks like stepping on every crack in the sidewalk and walking backward with her eyes closed. She even growls at dogs, but when she gets lost on her way home from school, her courage falters. This is a great book for talking about courage and fear and stepping up to help someone else face their fears. I love that each of Kevin Henkes characters is unique and likable. Yea! Yea! Sheila Rae!
