Written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes, the nationally bestselling and celebrated creator of Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, Owen, and Kitten's First Full Moon, Shelia Rae, the Brave is a warm, humorous, and loving story of sibling sympathy and support. Just because Sheila Rae is older, she doesn't always know better!

"I am very brave," Sheila Rae said, patting herself on the back. She wasn't afraid of anything--not thunder, not lightning, not the big black dog at the end of the block. And when she wanted to walk home a new way and Louise wouldn't, she called her sister a scaredy-cat and set out alone. But all the bravado in the world failed to help when Sheila Rae found herself lost. Luckily, her sister was not far behind.

"Children will love it."--School Library Journal

Supports the Common Core State Standards


The mouse heroine of Henkes's pitch-perfect comedy doesn't frighten easily‘she even growls at stray dogs. But when she gets lost, it's her "scaredy cat" sister who helps her find the way home. Ages 4-up. (Apr.)

PreS-Gr 3-Laura Hamilton does a wonderful job in this reading of Kevin Henkes' popular book (Greenwillow, 1987). Sheila Rae's self-proclaimed bravery is nowhere to be found when she finds herself lost on the way home from school one day. In an act of sibling-love, her little "scaredy-cat" sister helps out and saves the day. Appropriate sound effects are liberally infused in the recording, along with an occasional musical interlude, heightening the feelings of fear, helplessness, and finally triumph that listeners will feel right along with Sheila Rae. Henkes' gift for writing and illustrating is nicely complemented by this recording. Wonderful for read-alongs (especially for little sisters!), this title will be useful for emergent readers as well as general listening.-Kirsten Martindale, Buford Academy, GA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
