An empowering picture book for all kids that demonstrates to children that they can be real-life superheroes and that all kids have what it takes to be brave.

Superheroes seek adventure, never give up, and stay calm when others are
afraid. Superheroes are brave. But they aren’t the only ones.

Kids are brave every day. When they are told they are too little, but accomplish something big. When they check for monsters under the bed, just in case. When they face something uncertain, whether a thunderstorm or a hospital visit. When they stand up for what’s right, even when it means facing consequences.

Like superheroes, brave kids can save the world, just by being brave.

Thoughtful text from Stacy McAnulty paired with vibrant illustrations from Joanne Lew-Vriethoff encourage kids to be brave in all the ways they can: trying new things, speaking their mind, confronting bullies, and more. This book will inspire kids to follow their hearts and to have courage, no matter the situation.

  • "A gentle reminder of everyday challenges and opportunities, told with economy, clarity, and earnestness."
    -Kirkus Reviews
  • "This serious and heartfelt message is softened and reinforced by colorful illustrations, with pen-and-ink lines adding playful details."
