My Brave Year of Firsts

My Brave Year of Firsts

by Jamie Lee Curtis Illustrated by Laura Cornell

The tenth picture book by the #1 New York Times bestselling author Jamie Lee Curtis and #1 New York Times-bestselling illustrator Laura Cornell is a celebration of first times, the key moments in kids' lives that shape who they are. Funny yet heartfelt, this delightful title emphasizes that first times are about trying hard, being brave, strong, and true to yourself. The first time riding a two wheeler alone, a first pet, the first day of first grade — all the key moments in childhood that are momentous, exciting, and sometimes a little bit scary too are addressed. With her signature humor and heart, Jamie Lee Curtis reminds us that first times are about learning and growing.
