I Am So Brave!

by Stephen Krensky
Illustrated by Sara Gillingham

Published by Abrams Appleseed, 2014
10 pages
ISBN: 978𢴒197-09371

Ages 1-3

In this slim board book, a young brown-skinned boy tells of overcoming his fears. Each fear is resolved in a way that allows the boy to feel safe, content, and brave. The boy抯 obvious pride at overcoming his fears is reflected in the straightforward text and bright graphic-design-style illustrations in primary colors with brown, black, and white. Many of the boy抯 fears are common childhood worries barking dogs, loud traffic noises, bedtime darkness, being separated from Mom and Dad that all parents and children will easily recognize. The boy抯 solutions to his fears offer positive, encouraging responses to the anxiety that many children may feel in new or uncomfortable situations.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
