Brave, the second book in the Lessons of a LAC series, provides kids with a strategy for how to face things that worry them. While kids are blessed with imagination, that can be a source of anxiety. However, it can also be tapped to help them to feel calm, confident and BRAVE! In Brave, Curly teaches Loppy how to manage his worries, specifically his worries about going to school. However, the technique of helping children to ‘find their brave’ can be applied to any challenging situation.

Author: Lynn Jenkins
Illustrator: Kirrili Lonergan


'Brave' Book gives your child a strategy to do things they are worried about doing. Imagination is a very natural ‘go to’ for children. It can be a source of terror (as in anxiety), BUT it can also be tapped to help them to feel calm, confident and BRAVE!
Brave is consistent with the first book in this series, Lessons of a LAC, Curly teaches Loppy how to manage his worries, specifically, his worries about going to school. The technique of helping children to ‘find their brave’ when faced with a challenging situation can be applied to whatever the difficulty might be.
We hope you enjoy empowering your child with the tool of finding their BRAVE!


• This book is a must for children, both at home and at school, especially those who are prone to worry. Early intervention is the KEY. BUT everyone worries — and big or little worries can all be managed the Loppy and Curly way!

• Non-gender specific, appeals to both a national and international market.

• Anxiety and social emotional well-being are very topical.

• The author is an experienced and practising clinical psychologist and has a clear understanding of the type of issues affecting children.

• Part of a series that is used to run anxiety management workshops in schools.

• Simple characters that externalise anxiety chatter (Loppy) and its management (Curly). They are easy for children to relate to.

• Excellent resource tool and conversation starter for worries, anxiety, thinking styles, breathing, attitude and perspective.

WRITING STYLE: Conversational and educational in the realm of mental well-being.
