Have Courage

A Book About Being Brave

SKU: B562-Net

Help children develop the attitudes and skills of courage and assertiveness in order to make wise choices and work through challenges. Children learn to do what they think is right and be brave, even if it’s hard. They learn to distinguish between expectations set by trusted adults and hurtful, wrong, or dangerous things adults or children might pressure them to do. The book also highlights trying new things, taking reasonable risks, and speaking up.

Children will relate to the engaging illustrations, real-life situations, and easy-to-understand examples. Also included are discussion questions, games, activities, and additional information adults can use to reinforce the concepts children are learning.
