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

- Talk about brave and scared. Make a list of some things that scare you. Make another list of things you can do that help you to feel brave.
