Overview

Sheila Rae, the Brave by Kevin Henkes

Sheila Rae is not afraid of anything. She walks backwards with her eyes closed, steps on every crack, growls at stray dogs, and bares her teeth at stray cats. But when Sheila Rae becomes lost on the way home from school, it is her "scaredy cat" sister, Louise, who shows her a thing or two about bravery and sibling love.

My 4 and 6 year old daughters love this book. They enjoy reading it and then acting it out together, my 4 year old loves that the little sister gets to be the one to save the day. Wonderful story for any child.

I purchased this book for my daughters and they loved it! The premise of the brave older sister getting in over her head and the younger daughter coming to the rescue is something both my 7 year and 3 year old responded to. Each of my daughters identified with the character they most resembled. The artwork is vivid and they have enjoyed several books in this series by the same author. The books are very individual to themselves and so each one stands entirely on its own. I would recommend this book to anyone with a pair of girls that are adventure loving and confident in their abilities. My older daughter laughs out loud at the "braveness" of Sheila and her resulting antics. Great read!

We love Kevin Henkes books. The series are just perfect for kindergarten children. My son just loved it. I reccomend for 5-6 years old children

A beautiful story for children, especially girls, age 3-6. Younger children will love to have it read to them, and those who can read will enjoy it in a different way.

When Sheila Rae walks home a different way, she decides she's not the bravest. I played Louise's, Sheila's little sister,voice in the CDrom. It was very fun and I really got to know the story well. Now that I am older I am into other books but I always read it when I need a short good book. I recommend this to children under the age of 10. It is a very sweet book and the CDrom is a fun way to see the book come alive.
