Through captivating story-telling, hands-on activities, a behind-the-scenes virtual tour of Angelique Monet’s studio, and the book’s free augmented reality app, children recognize others' feelings and become more in touch with their own.  They are inspired to connect emotionally to the book’s main character, struggle, and triumph and learn strategies to effectively cope with those feelings.


For over 7 years, this event has grown nationally and the book has reached children all over the world. Good Morning America describes the book as a ‘story of courage born from a personal place and it’s not just for kids but empowering for adults as well which is the sign of a good children’s book.”


Together, Angelique knows we can build a world of Bravest Worriers!

It is my pleasure to write a letter in support of Author/Illustrator Angelique Monet’s ‘A Day to Be Brave.’ The Georgia Division of Family and Children’s Services worked with Angelique to schedule, plan, and execute a live author reading for thousands of children in foster care.  Angelique provided an outline, schedule of events, and marketing materials to share with our children, their caregivers, and our DFCS staff.  


She made herself available for questions/comments; shared information about her own foster care experience; and was an overall joy to work with.  She created and sent out the registration links, and helped to ship her book, The Bravest Worrier, to thousands of children in foster care.  Each book included a personalized message from Angelique.  Not only were children provided with the book, but they were also given a message about courage and hope.  We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from caregivers and children about the illustration of the book and the execution of the reading by Angelique.
