About the book

When your child is feeling a teeny-tiny bit scared about the first day of a new school year, they receive a letter from six children around the world, inviting them to visit and learn what it takes to be brave. 

Accompanied by their helpful, though somewhat clumsy, feathered friend, Bravebeak, your child will be whisked to Nepal, India, Jordan, South Africa, Vietnam, and Honduras. 

Each nation is beautifully illustrated by an artist from that country, making Be Brave a diverse, colourful celebration of the world’s different cultures.

Six illustrators for six countries

To create a book which represents the truly global reach of Room to Read’s programs, each country has been illustrated by an artist from that country. 

The different illustration styles give each page a strong visual identity which further enhances the feeling of travel and wonder.

At a time when almost a billion children around the world are faced with restricted access to their schools, Be Brave is a wonderful way for your child to learn about and empathize with children going to school across the globe.

What can you personalize?

Seeing characters who look like them is key to increasing children’s engagement with books, and our super fun configurator allows you to create a main character who looks just like your little one.

Options including name, skin tone, hair style, eye shape, clothing, and glasses allow you to create a child that looks just right from thousands of combinations.
