    This was an old standby that I read many times to and with kids in the early 90s I just reread it so I could review it here on Goodreads.I see why it was so popular and why it was so much fun for me to read All the things Sheila Rae isn t afraid of are things kids are going to be afraid of at times, and what eventually frightens Sheila Rae is a fear with which every child can identify Sheila Rae and her sister Louise show kids that everyone is sometimes brave and everyone is scared sometimes This was an old standby that I read many times to and with kids in the early 90s I just reread it so I could review it here on Goodreads.I see why it was so popular and why it was so much fun for me to read All the things Sheila Rae isn t afraid of are things kids are going to be afraid of at times, and what eventually frightens Sheila Rae is a fear with which every child can identify Sheila Rae and her sister Louise show kids that everyone is sometimes brave and everyone is scared sometimes too.The illustrations are adorable and had me smiling throughout.This is a wonderful book to read with siblings, particularly older and young sisters.It s done in play so I should not take offense, but with this reading I was slightly taken aback and admit I was a tad disturbed when Sheila Rae growled at stray dogs and bared her teeth at stray cats, scaring both Otherwise, she is a very appealing character.I ve just recently been enjoying Henke s books and had forgotten that this was one of them, and one that I enjoyed first nearly two decades ago

    Sheila Rae was one brave mouse Unlike her younger sister Louise, she wasn t afraid of the dark, of thunder and lightning, or of big black dogs She liked to pretend that the trees were monsters that needed to be vanquished, and enjoyed riding her bicycle with no hands, while keeping her eyes closed But when Sheila Rae announced one day that she was going to walk home from school using a different route, scorning Louise s timidity, she soon discovered that there was something she was afraid of Sheila Rae was one brave mouse Unlike her younger sister Louise, she wasn t afraid of the dark, of thunder and lightning, or of big black dogs She liked to pretend that the trees were monsters that needed to be vanquished, and enjoyed riding her bicycle with no hands, while keeping her eyes closed But when Sheila Rae announced one day that she was going to walk home from school using a different route, scorning Louise s timidity, she soon discovered that there was something she was afraid of after all Luckily, Louise was there to lend a handAnother of Kevin Henkes marvelous Mouse Tales, Sheila Rae, the Brave is an engaging tale of a young mouse who learns that everyone feels fear, at one point or another, and that sometimes, those who seem like scaredy cats on the outside, can draw upon hidden stores of courage As always, I enjoyed Henkes spot on depiction of the childhood experience as one of three sisters myself, I particularly appreciated that this charming tale concerned two sisters and found his illustrations adorable Definitely one I would recommend, especially to young children who are very timid themselves, or who scorn the timid

    I wasn t quite as touched by this one as I usually am by Henkes work, but it s still quite worthy of a read Here we have the big sister, Sheila Rae, who is not afraid of anything And we have the little sister who is always looking up to Sheila Rae and always in her shadow Until, one day, Sheila Rae IS afraid And it doesn t seem there is anyone around to help her Oh, but there is Definitely a good sibling read

    This book made me cringe The things Sheila Rae did were rarely brave Mostly inconsiderate or dangerous I don t think many children would understand why stepping on sidewalk crack would make you brave A bit of a dated concept Not a book my son could connect to.

    I read this all by myself today I liked how Sheila Rae thought she was brave, but her sister was really the one who was bravest.

    I like how the book turned everything on its head, although the character s personalities seemed to switch It was interesting, but didn t make much sense However, I thought it was great and am adding Kevin Henkes to my list of authors to check out.

    This is such a cute book about a brave little mouse who stands up to anything, until she gets lost Her sister who Sheila Rae believes is not brave, comes to the rescue and saves her I like this book because it reinforces the theme that anyone and everyone is brave not just in the way you are We need to look at everyone as unique and as their own person We need not compare I think this book does a great job of opening up that topic to children so you can start discussing it.

    What a sweet,convincing personified animal story A lot of what Henkes does is subtle but carries you through the story the text is laid out with two or three illustrations on a page when he wants to move you along in a quick pace and then full page when there is something to linger on He hooked me to the premise of her being brave when he starts the story showing her standing on a chair to kiss a spider suspended from the ceiling He does so much with tilt of a head, facial expressions that What a sweet,convincing personified animal story A lot of what Henkes does is subtle but carries you through the story the text is laid out with two or three illustrations on a page when he wants to move you along in a quick pace and then full page when there is something to linger on He hooked me to the premise of her being brave when he starts the story showing her standing on a chair to kiss a spider suspended from the ceiling He does so much with tilt of a head, facial expressions that help you embrace the mice as real people as well as their actions little sister Louise covering her eyes with her boths, peeking out from under a tablecloth As Sheila Rae continuously proves how brave she is by stepping on cracks on the sidewalk, riding her bike with her eyes closed, etc her little sister just looks on Until Sheila Rae decides to take a new way home from school and takes off, after accusing her sister of always being a scaredy cat am not, whispered Louise She does all sort of brave looking things snarling at dogs, walking backwards, until she find herself lost But throughout it, Henkes shows us the presence of her little sister who has followed her after all, hiding in bushes sometimes just her bowed pony tail showing When Sheila Rae calls out for her parents and her sister, the sister jumps down from a tree with the text above the picture and then below it when she hits the ground and comforts her sister Louise then leads the way home mimicing all the things Sheila Rae did snarling etc until they arrive home And both proclaim the other brave and walk into the house backwards with their eyes closed Intended for preschoolers through eight year olds, this story could lead off a discussion about being brave, what does it really look like, about caring for one another, listing and counting preschoolers, kindergarten first grade all the different things that Sheila did that was brave, noticing where Louise was hiding and how did they know alternative endings, looking at how Henkes moved the story along, what other things could he have Sheila doing to show she was brave

    There is a point of brave and there is a point of stupidI don t think Shelia Rae is all that brave, she is kind of tempting fate She is a little reckless Why not just play with fire I am fearless Play chicken on a train track I am brave I like the elements of overcoming fears, but her bravery gets her in trouble I don t think the author meant to portray that careless element but it is there It is suppose to be Brave this book isabout being careless and I wouldn t growl at There is a point of brave and there is a point of stupidI don t think Shelia Rae is all that brave, she is kind of tempting fate She is a little reckless Why not just play with fire I am fearless Play chicken on a train track I am brave I like the elements of overcoming fears, but her bravery gets her in trouble I don t think the author meant to portray that careless element but it is there It is suppose to be Brave this book isabout being careless and I wouldn t growl at dogsthat is just itching to be bitten so not overly impressedstill gave it a pretty good scorebut not a must read
