WHEN YOU ARE BRAVE

Have you ever been scared? What do you do? How do you handle it?

Brave

Pat Zietlow Miller shows us how one little girl overcomes her fear in her picture book WHEN YOU ARE BRAVE.  Miller’s simple text that includes similes speaks to readers. Through the eyes of the little girl, readers are inspired to look deep inside and find the courage to overcome fear. Eliza Wheeler’s accompanying illustrations use dark tones to depict the fear the little girl feels at the beginning of the story. With each page turn, the mood of the story changes. The turning point in the book is expressed beautifully in words and illustrations.

You can make your courage so big it brightens your heart, fills your fingers, and flows to your toes.”

Wheeler’s illustrations become colorful and bright, and Miller’s text circles back to the beginning for a very satisfying ending. This is a perfect book to share with youngsters who may be feeling anxious.
