“I Am Courage: A Book of Resilience” by Susan Verde
In everyone’s life, a moment comes when they need a reminder that they are strong, resilient and courageous. In Susan Verde’s book “I Am Courage: A Book of Resilience,” she reminds her young readers that no matter the hardship and adversity, they can stand on their own two feet and persevere. Through the images created by Peter H. Reynolds, “I Am Courage: A Book of Resilience” shares the story of a young child who finds the strength within to push past their fears and doubts. With the help of friends, they push forward together and face the unknown believing they will triumph. While not specifically about the military or Veterans, this story illustrates how service members are put into dangerous situations, and yet continue to stand strong and resilient, facing their fears together as a united force.
