Description

 

See below for English description.

Quand Daniel a soufflé les bougies de son gâteau de huitième anniversaire, il a fait le voeu d'être aussi courageux que sa soeur Fiona.

Bien qu'ils soient jumeaux, Daniel et Fiona ont des personnalités opposées. Fiona est intrépide. Elle adore regarder des films effrayants, n'a plus besoin de veilleuse pour dormir et plonge là où elle n'a pas pied dans la piscine. Daniel, lui, a une peur bleue des présentations orales et met un peu plus longtemps pour s'habituer à des situations nouvelles. Comme leur famille vient de déménager, les deux enfants vont devoir fréquenter une nouvelle école au beau milieu de l'année scolaire. Daniel aura besoin d'une bonne dose de courage. Son voeu se réalisera-t-il avant son neuvième anniversaire?

Comme toujours, Nancy Wilcox Richards met à profit son expérience d'enseignante au primaire dans cette belle étude des traits de caractère qui comporte de multiples références au programme scolaire.

 

When Daniel blew out the candles on his eighth birthday he had made a wish: to be brave like Fiona.

Fiona and Daniel are twins but they aren't anything alike. Fiona is fearless. She loves to watch spooky movies, she never sleeps with a nightlight and she cannonballs right into the deep end of the pool. Daniel needs a little more time to feel comfortable in new situations.

As the twins get ready to start all over at a new school in April, Daniel needs all the courage he can get!

Will Daniel see last year's wish come true - especially when he has to give a presentation to the whole class?

As always, Nancy Wilcox Richards draws on her many years teaching elementary school and effortlessly ties in curriculum links, along with the character traits explored here.

Original title: How to Be Brave
