A Fun Story about Courage and Kids Dealing with Problems in a Healthy Way

Part of a series about kids dealing with everyday hurdles and accomplishments, You’re a Brave Kid!, thoughtfully written by Sandrina Kurtz, shows that problems are better solved when shared with loved ones.

When Magnolia accidentally makes a small mess in the kitchen, it quickly escalates into a greater problem. The hilarious illustrations by John Kurtz show just how large a disaster Magnolia imagines it to be. Only by being brave does she realize it was never the big deal she worried it was.

With a positive and reassuring message for all children, this is a fun and engaging book for parents and kids alike, to be enjoyed over and over.
