Join celebrated children's author, Sir Rhymesalot as he joins our young protagonist on the morning of his fifth birthday. You know that feeling of complete joy when waking up to remember your friends are all coming to your party. That is what this young fellow was feeling when that dark cloud crept over him at the sudden realization that Bradley is also attending, and Bradley is a bully. I Lost My Brave is all about navigating the path to find peace when faced with the deep anxiety of being bullied.The Sir Rhymesalot reading level (lexile) is age 11 - 14 (grade 4 - 6) but parents reading these books to children aged 3 - 7 (K - 2) can strengthen literacy and vocabulary significantly in their young minds. This is due to the power of rhyme as a literacy builder.

Author Biography

An Australian poet-pirate-persona is a very good place to start describing this relentless-rhymer, but his books are as multidimensional as the renaissance polymath himself. Simon Mills is a gregarious, larger-than-life author who masterfully communicates on multiple levels. Courageously comedic and then soulful when you least expect it, his stories entertain the parent reader on one level and the youngster on another entirely. You will meet Violet the Virus who longingly loves people but has no idea she is harmful. You will meander through Venice with Pigeoni, the Italian consigliere whose fanciful-fairytales prove too much for his fellow feathered friends until they discover the remarkable truth of his character. Parables that ponder themes from bullying to self-belief in I Lost My Brave, and from racial harmony, in Cyril the Squirrel to social distancing dilemmas in I Lost My Hug.
