Courage by Bernard Waber- ADVISABLE

Courage by Bernard Waber. BOARD BOOK. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2002.
$18. 9780618238552



The opening pages of Courage begin with these simple words: “There are many kinds of courage. Awesome kinds. And everyday kinds.”  Waber explores the various types of everyday situations that require courage and then lovingly brings them to life in this board book.  Whether riding a bike without training wheels or going to bed without a nightlight, children face courage strengthening events on a daily basis.  The most important aspect of courage is found on the final page: “Courage is what we give to each other.”

In this over sized board book children will delight in reading and discussing the emotions surrounding courageous moments in life.  This book will create a perfect springboard for parents to discuss with little ones the drive and determination it takes to face fears and exhibit courage in all situations.  The illustrations are soft and subtle.
