Illustrated by Gülce Baycik
Here’s another good one from Dr. Owen. The first lesson—when things that we find scary are not actually dangerous, it’s time to be brave. She goes on to define what it means to be brave. She explains how our brains are not always right about what is truly scary. Being brave can be tough for grown ups as well as kids.
So trying new things, doing the right thing, or doing something hard are all sometimes scary. She goes on to give children ideas about how to encourage themselves and push forward when facing scary things.
As always in this series, the illustrations are colorful, inclusive, and full of emotion. It is definitely a good addition to your home library or for your school.
