Unlike her little sister, Louise, Sheila Rae isn't afraid of anything. While Louise avoids the cracks in the sidewalk, Sheila Rae hops on every one. And when Sheila Rae barks at mean dogs, Louise hides behind a bush.

But one day, Sheila Rae's bravery gets her into trouble. She decides to take a new way home from school, and she's having a great time walking backward and climbing trees…until she realizes that she has no idea where she is. All of a sudden, for the first time in her life, Sheila Rae is scared. And when Louise shows up to help, Sheila Rae comes to understand that there are lots of different ways to be brave.

With funny, clever illustrations and a heartwarming message, this cute story about bravery is a hit with little and big siblings everywhere.
