Synopsis: “I am very brave,” Sheila Rae said, patting herself on the back. She wasn’t afraid of anything—not thunder, not lightning, not the big black dog at the end of the block. And when she wanted to walk home a new way and Louise wouldn’t, she called her sister a scaredy-cat and set out alone. But all the bravado in the world failed to help when Sheila Rae found herself lost. Luckily, her sister was not far behind.

Debrief Questions:

  • What is one time you needed to ask for help? How did you feel?
  • What does it mean to be brave? Who is a person you think is brave?
