Author/Illustrator: Kevin Henkes
Publisher: Greenwillow, 1987
Themes: mice, courage, siblings
Opening: Sheila Rae wasn’t afraid of anything.
Summary: (from my library catalog) When brave Sheila Rae, who usually looks out for her sister Louise, becomes lost and scared one day, Louise comes to the rescue.
I like this book because: I read a lot of picture books, and as much as I get excited about new ones to love, I rejoice all the more when I find an older classic. Almost 30 years old yet fresh , snappy, and kids can relate just as easily today.
Resources/activities: discuss individual fears, how to possibly overcome them, and how one person’s abilities differ from another’s.
