Publisher Comments:

Some children experience anxiety as a way of life. They may be anxious about many everyday events like taking a test, meeting new people, experiencing new places, or they may be having trouble with school avoidance. It is helpful for children to understand those anxieties, and to have ideas about what to do about them. It can be beneficial for children to read about someone going through the same experiences, and feeling the same feelings that they are experiencing. Our books on anxiety strive to give that benefit to your child.

Review:

"Brave addresses many of the worries created by children with social anxiety. It not only provides a platform from which to initiate discussion but it also provides a tool children can use to help them through difficult times. This beneficial book will help many children."
Karen Gedig Burnett, author of Simon's Hook

Review:

"This book will appeal to kids of every age. It is informative, but also funny. Many kids will relate to Danny's experiences. Reading Brave will help kids with social anxiety feel less alone and give them hope for the future."
James J. Crist author of What to Do When You're Scared and Worried

Synopsis:

Danny, a fifth grader, is bombarded with real and imagined problems. As if school itself wasn't stressful enough, a long speech is required, which feels impossible to him. The only way out of giving the speech is to win the science contest. When he's paired with Jack, the goof-off kid in class, he's doomed. Bus stop terrors, lunch time woes, and dealing with his mean older brother adds to his stress. Then disaster strikes! His usual coping strategies are no longer working. What will he do?

BRAVE: Be Ready and Victory’s Easy

Whether opportunistically or with some forethought, people have made and used tools through the millennia. We see evidence of this today in technological innovations that literally have changed the face of the Earth. Yet, we have lagged in developing tools that contribute to what has come to be known as emotional intelligence. The engaging story about a boy named Danny as told in BRAVE makes a contribution to the toolkit for dealing with social anxiety. Danny has challenges in fifth grade, when he learns tools for dealing with both difficult people and uncomfortable situations. He then takes steps to put the tools to use. These are lessons I wish for every child.
