Anika looks forward to visiting her grandparents each Sunday: she gets dressed up, receives lots of hugs, and helps in their warm kitchen. But today, Anika makes a confession: she doesn’t think that she’s brave. Her grandfather uses his globe-trotting stories to teach her that “brave” has many meanings, and some fit cheerful four-year-old girls! With watercolor sensibilities and stylized faces half in shadows, but always smiling, the illustrations are calming and playful in this appealing picture book that celebrates trying new things.
