    The Many Faces Of Courage

    As Maya Angelou has said 'One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential.' If you agree with this philosophy, then you realize that courage, as character, must be fostered and developed. Bernard Waber's book works so well because it shows young readers the many faces of courage. There are the obvious kinds -firefighters entering a burning building, mountain climbers scaling the heights - involving people and actions which youngsters find heroic, larger than life-size. But children will realize, thanks to this insightful book, that ordinary, everday actions also require courage, whether it's breaking bad habits, holding on to your dreams, or being the first to apologize after an argument. Even acts of common courtesy may display courage in action. This book encourages youngsters to go on in the face of adversity and feel good about themselves for doing so. It should serve as an excellent starting point for parents to discuss this important topic with their children. Those who enjoy this book may also enjoy another picture book, Ruby Lee the Bumble Bee - A Bee's Bit of Wisdom. In it, a young girl uncertain of her abilities learns the value of courage when faced with a challenge. Readers will learn that facing a challenge - finding the courage to do so - is a rewarding life lesson. To paraphrase Maya Angelou once more, 'Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.' Those who read Courage will undoubtedly agree.

    Absolutely wonderful!!

    There is absolutely nothing more inspiring than a "good" book. This happens to be one. If you are looking for a story to read to your children, this is the book!

    Highly recommended

    I got this gift for an inquisitive five yr. old boy. It was perfect. The little book is lovely. It helps kids to know that you don't have to be a super heroe to have courage!
