Book Review: When You Are Brave

Author: Pat Zietlow Miller
Illustrator: Eliza Wheeler

From the Book Jacket: Some days, when everything around you seems scary, you have to be brave. Saying goodbye to neighbors. Worrying about new friends. Passing through a big city. Seeing a dark road ahead. In these moments, a young girl feels small and quiet and alone. But when she breathes deeply and looks inside herself, a hidden spark of courage appears, one she can nurture and grow until she glows inside and out. 

Why It's On My Bookshelf: Really love this book. It reminds kids they have a light inside of them. And that it might start out small like a spark but you can turn it into a flame. If you picture it in your mind it will become bigger and bolder! That courage will brighten your heart and fill your body. The story also tells us to think about what we are good at. What do we love to do or who do we love. Those positive thoughts will guide you out of the dark. No matter what happens - you'll be all right.
