Brave Irene

Steig, W(1986). Brave Irene. New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

Irene Bobbin rushes through a snow storm to deliver the duchess’ dress to her before the ball.

Genre: Fiction (realistic)

Grades: K- 2nd

Audience: Parents, teachers, and young children

I would give this book a four because I really liked the pictures, the story, and the message of the book. I think it is a great book for younger children because Irene demonstrates determination and willpower.

Would you go out in the middle of a snowstorm to give the duchess her dress?
