Description:

Song of Bravery: A Book of Chants, Charms, & Blessings, a collection of poems to provide comfort, courage, and humor at difficult or daunting moments in life.  It conjures forth laments, spells, invocations, chants, blessings, promises, songs, and charms. Here are pleas on how to repair a friendship, wishes to transform one’s life, or to slow down time, charms to face the shame of a disapproving crowd, invocations to ask for forgiveness, to understand the mysteries of happiness, and to bravely facing a dark and different world. These words help us remember or grieve; they bolster courage and guard against evil; they help us celebrate and give thanks.     Poet extraordinaire Joyce Sidman won the Newbery Honor Medal forDark Emperor and Other Poems of the Nightand continues to write poetry for children that has been called "fresh," "inspiring," and "accessible" to her young audience. She is intrigued by the idea of "words of power"—chants and charms that were once believed to have real influence in everyday life.     Caldecott Honor-winning Pamela Zagarenski's beautiful art captures a world of emotion and the essence of Sidman's words.
