Brave Rooney is a fantastic storybook app for the start of a new school year. It’s the story of a boy named Rooney who finds himself going to a brand new school. At this school all of the kids are literally superheroes but he is just ordinary Rooney, a boy who’s having a tough time fitting in. One day the school has a poetry recital and the brave and fearless superheroes become scared to death about getting in front of each other. Rooney has the courage to be the first one to share and he shows them all a different kind of bravery. This is a terrific story about accepting others differences and being okay with your own self.
Brave Rooney was written by Gerry Renert who is an award winning and Emmy nominated children’s television writer. He’s tapped into this familiar worry, “Will I fit in?”, and he presents it in a humorous way that I think children will really understand and relate to. I know my kids did! The illustrations are fun and there are interactions woven throughout the story. This story is a winner for back to school or any time of the year!
