The Courage to be Afraid is a unique book of poetry for young and old people. It focuses on fears, threats and our way to find some courage in a scary world. These are, unfortunately, very relevant topics - not only for children.
The poems grew out of the very special situation of Israel, a tiny place under constant threat. Nava Semel tries to confront her own fears and those of her children's through humor and a deep yearning for normalcy.
