A story of courage, determination, and a dash of friendship.
Courage is something that comes from your heart. But if you can't find it there, you can wear it on your head at first.
Mae is a girl.
Bear is a bear.
But over the course of one life-changing, slightly nerve-racking train ride, they find out that this might be the only thing they don't have in common.
Kate Hoefler's lyricism and Jessixa Bagley's sweetly wry art combine for a gently whimsical, people- (and bear-) pleaser of a story about the fear of being different, the ways we overcome this fear, and the fact that often what's different is a lot more familiar than we might think. With courage, determination, and a dash of friendship, Mae and Bear discover all the humor, warmth, and beauty found in togetherness and in the unknown.
"Courage Hats is so beautiful, so profound, so much fun to read aloud slowly and thoughtfully. I love it so! I want to gift a copy to many people!"—Mr. Schu Reads blog
