A story about a boy learning to manage his fears of social situations and criticism. He uses the acronym BRAVE, which stands for be ready and victory's easy; to plan ahead for difficult situations at school and home. Back Cover: Danny, a fifth grader, is bombarded with real and imagined problems. As if school itself wasn't stressful enough, a long speech is required, which feels impossible to him. The only way to get out of giving the speech is to win the science contest. When he's paired with Jack, the goof-off kid in class, he's doomed. Bus stop terrors, lunchtime woes, and dealing with his mean older brother add to his stress. Then disaster strikes! His usual coping strategies are no longer working. What will he do?

It was okay -, probably good for normal kids who don't really need it anyway. Doesn't reAlly apply to children dealing with real difficulties.
I initially read this book with the eyes of a fifth-grader but the universal message of being prepared for the eventuality of stressful situations and having the tools needed to get through them is a lesson anyone could relate to! Danny is believable as are the situations he encounters. The authors do a great job of covering a multitude of 'worries'; surely any child will recognize theirs in these pages. I sure wish I had these tools when I was a child and I will actually be giving this book to my still-anxious nineteen year old college student to read!
This is a great book for any child dealing with the stresses of fitting in at school. Be Ready And Victory's Easy is a great motto to instill with every child. This book is not too preachy and delivers the right amount of advice that can quickly be absorbed by a younger reader. I just wish they would have had this book around when I was a child.
Whether opportunistically or with some forethought, people have made and used tools through the millennia. We see evidence of this today in technological innovations that literally have changed the face of the Earth. Yet, we have lagged in developing tools that contribute to what has come to be known as emotional intelligence. The engaging story about a boy named Danny as told in BRAVE makes a contribution to the toolkit for dealing with social anxiety. Danny has challenges in fifth grade, when he learns tools for dealing with both difficult people and uncomfortable situations. He then takes steps to put the tools to use. These are lessons I wish for every child.
This book was great. My son had many similar fears as the boy in the story, so he was able to relate. This book helped us find something that worked and my son has been able to do many things previously impossible.

Would definitely reccommend for anybody with a young child that experiences frequent anxiety.
This was a great book to read with my 3rd grader who struggles with too much attention, feeling overwhelmed in groups, and feeling noticed and embarrassed. We could read and discuss situations as they were happening to the character in the book to feel less intimating to my son (than talking about himself). Hw could relate to the main characters experiences and gave us a platform to discuss situations that are difficult for him.
