My kids love all the silver and gold tale books. They are especially lovely due to their colorful illustrations and crisp thick pages. Blake teaches readers to conquer their fears and to turn into a leader when the need arises. My daughter especially enjoys this book. It’s an easy read, not too short but not too long.

I loved the example of a boy being brave to help his mom and growing up to be a good man. My sons need good examples of men in their lives.

It has a great message of bravery.

I think what I love most about this book, is that at the end, he is passing the trait of bravery to his own children.

Blake the Brave is part of a series called Gold Tales. These little hard bound books are the perfect size for young readers. The stories are dynamic and interesting even while being easy enough for new readers. This is a cute little tale about a boy who faced his fear of rats in order to save something precious to his mother.
