Frankie Finds Her Courage
by Annie Streit
Frankie the sweet Basset Hound is so good at finding things. She can find everything!
…Except her courage, which holds Frankie back from all the things she wants to experience; she is far too scared to try anything new. Where could her courage be hiding?
With a little help from her wonderful friends, Frankie will find her courage and learn to be the best she can be—and she is excited to share what she has learned with you!
Frankie Finds Her Courage is the fourth book in Annie Streit’s rhyming picture book series, following Scooter and His Scoot Scoot, A Dog Named Bird, and Rough and Tough T-Bone. Each book in the series focuses on topics that many children experience while growing up, such as accepting differences, empathy, overcoming obstacles, and the impact of kindness and forgiveness.
