Hedgie Blasts Off by Jan Brett…

A cute story of courage with engaging illustrations. Hedgie is an adorable hedgehog who finds courage when the opportunity presents itself and becomes a hero. One of my boys brought this book home from his school library. I was surprised to see that it is another #janbrett book. We love her books. They all have such gorgeous illustrations! .

I thought it was important to use Hedgie’s example to tell my boys that there is no courage without fear. The real definition of courage is being scared but still doing it because you know that it’s the right thing to do. We also discussed about a few such situations in our lives where each of us displayed courage. One of my boys remembered his first experience at the new swimming class that he joined recently. The other one remembered trying a new food even though it didn’t look very good to him.
