As one girl watches her mom battle illness, she sees Mom being strong, brave, and fierce on both good days and bad ones. Mom is fierce as she catches and wrestles a fish and brave as she endures needles from the doctor. The girl wants to be brave like Mom! As she worries about her mom's health, the girl realizes that bravery comes in many forms and that she can be brave too.

A poignant and sensitive story about a loved one living with a chronic illness, and an important lesson about how being brave doesn't mean you aren't scared.


"It's an important lesson, one supported by colorful and engaging illustrations that capture the good moments and the not-so-good ones. . . . Tenderly encouraging, with a message of hope and resilience."

Kirkus Reviews

"Brave Like Mom is a poignant and sensitive story about a child living with a parent who has a chronic illness. Thoroughly 'kid friendly' in presentation and with an important lesson for young children about how being brave doesn't mean you aren't scared."
