Not-So-Brave penguin is about Percy and Posy. Percy is brave and not scared of anything. Posy is scared of just about everything (kind of like me!) When Percy goes out to play and doesn’t come back, Posy gets worried. Everyone assures her that he is fine and that she just worries too much (also kind of like me!) but she decides to be brave and jump into the sea and try and find Percy. She finds Percy who is surprised that she made it to him – and Posy starts to get scared because of the dark. But Percy shows her that the sky was actually not scary, but BEAUTIFUL instead. Percy thanks Posy and tells her that she was brave!! She didn’t know she was brave!
At the end of the book is some discussion and comprehension topics based on the topics in the book and being brave and being scared. I thought this was a really cute story.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated. This book was published November 13, 2018 on Quarto Publishing.
