You Are Brave (You Are Important Series)by Melodee Strong Todd Snow, Melodee Strong (Illustrator)
Every child is brave in his or her own way, and there are many different ways to be brave. With simple words and vivid illustrations that relate to children's everyday lives, You Are Brave lets very young children know that bravery is about all kinds of things: walking and running, meeting new people, climbing and jumping, trying new foods, and more. The "superhero" cover reinforces the message. A warm, affirming, important little book that helps children know they are precious and valuable.

I am pleased to see children from all ethnic and culturally diverse backgrounds illustrated in this series of books. I bought these books last year and am planning on buying more as they make great gifts for children. The parents of the children I gave the books to loved them also. The children can relate because they look like themselves and their friends.
When I read these books, I was so blessed. I wanted to read them right away to the second graders that I taught a few years ago. I now teach Middle School and I thought that they would not be interested. Boy, was I wrong when I have students reading they pick these books first. As an artist I so appreciate an artist that is not afraid of exploring people of color and not allowing one race to become exclusive over this series of books. Well writen, well ilustarted, well published.
Uncle Todd I love your book!I also think it is so cool that you dedicated it to me! Lyl!
