Brave by Lynn Jenkins, illustrated by Kirrili Lonergan (Little Steps Publishing) PB RRP $16.95

ISBN: 9781925117844

Reviewed by Anne Hamilton

Vibrant red and white loops of colour straddle the pages of this bright, cheerful book which encourages children to use their imagination to find their BRAVE. Loppy and Curly are two zany characters with a dilemma: Loppy is scared just thinking about going to school while Curly has his work cut out for him getting Loppy to put on his BRAVE suit and face his fears.

The principles in this book are aimed at helping parents who have anxious children, especially those in the 3–6 year old category. Going to bed in the dark, weathering a storm, speaking in class, making new friends, fronting up at school… all these can be nerve-wracking events for children. Loppy and Curly are here to show how to find the BRAVE hidden inside.
