Life can be wonderful and inspiring, but it can also be frightening. How do we deal with things that frighten us? Like the fiery dragon in our fairy tale imaginings? Or the music concert where we have to stand on a stage in front of an audience? These are all difficult and sometimes frightening occurrences, and fear doesn’t leave us when we grow up. A little girl has her guardian angel with her at all times when she’s growing up. And the secret shared by this angel is the most empowering words one can share: “You got this. The courage you need … is in you.” So true, but not always easy to remember, as the little girl realizes once she’s grown up and living away from home. All it takes is a quick visit home, to the special garden she shared with her angel during the growing-up years.
Wanda Carter Roush’s picture book story, You Got This: A Tale of Courage, is a sweet and gentle story about learning to overcome one’s fears. Like the title says, it’s a tale of courage. The story is told in simple language to appeal to the young reader and the repetitive, “You got this” phrase will be instantly recognized and remembered as young readers learn to implement positive steps toward their own courage. The illustrations are spectacular and certainly make this story extra special. Lovingly told with compassion, this story is a great way to empower young readers with the courage to reach their fullest potential in spite of their fears.
