I liked this book for several reasons. First, the story is relatable to children, encouraging them to overcome their fears and be brave. Second, the illustrations were lively and assisted in telling the story. Finally, the story incorporated numbers and counting. I liked that with each new page, the author counted from 1 to 10, using the illustrations to show the number of eyes or stars that the narrator was seeing. The big idea of this story is to be brave, and not fear what you do not know or see. ( )

A little skunk makes his way through the deep dark wood, meeting each not-so-scary encounter with brave stomping, singing, or tail-raising. This would be a good Halloween read-aloud for PK-K. ( )

In the Bravest of the Brave, a young skunk makes its way home through the forest and is frightened by various creatures during his trek. Young children love this story. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375826378, Hardcover)

Late one day I hurried home,
Stepping through the wood alone.
It was deep and dim; I could barely see.
But I thought brave thoughts to comfort me.

A Young Skunk heads home through the woods—alone. Or maybe not…
Could there be robbers, or pirates, or ghosts, or trappers in the woods? And is our hero brave enough to keep away?
With bouncy rhymes, charming art, a subtle counting theme, and a surprise ending, this story will entertain and reassure any child who’s ever been afraid.

A fearless little skunk sets off through the woods alone at night encountering scary creatures, which the reader can correctly identify as various forest animals.
