Rep. Michael Waltz, R-Fla., is already a member of the Armed Services Committee, a Green Beret veteran and former White House counterterrorism policy adviser, but he added the children’s book author to his resume this month when his latest book was published. .
“I wrote the book because following what we’ve seen with the COVID and COVID lockdowns exposing a lot of the garbage that’s now being taught to our children, following what we’ve seen with the backlash in Virginia, with the Youngkin race and now what we’re seeing with Disney and their woke agenda exposed. Now we have to take back our kids’ education. We have to provide them with good conservative content,” Waltz told Fox News Digital.
REPRESENTING. MIKE WALTZ: MILITARY THEORY AND RACE CRITICISM – THIS IS WHY WE MUST NOT TEACH SOLDIERS TO HATE US
Waltz has partnered with Braves Books, which aims to “teach core conservative values” by “dispelling the progressive agenda of teaching our children all the wrong lessons,” according to his official online store.
“Dawn of the Brave” is the ninth and final book in a serieslike every character previously have had their own adventures. All the characters reflect the traditional values of faith, family, the right of every family to defend themselves, and Waltz – who joined other curators who wrote the previous books – was able to bring them all together to work as a team. to defend Freedom Island from evil rat wolves.
“He’s trying to teach our young people, our young children, is that to serve your country, to serve each other, to serve your community, and that self-sacrifice is something that needs to be taught, and they need to imitate and it will make our country bigger and better citizens,” he said.
Waltz, who opposes everything from universities to elementary schools pushing a liberal agenda, believes conservatives must act.
“In the case of Florida, where they’re opposing a law that says we shouldn’t talk about sex and gender for five-year-olds and free kindergarten and first graders. So I think that ‘They are on the left, it will be headlong on their agenda. But we have to start fighting back. We have to start fighting back,’ he said. “Complaining and pushing back is not enough. How do you fill this void with traditional conservative values in content? That’s what ‘Dawn of the Brave’ and the Brave books seek to do.”
Waltz hopes ‘Dawn of the Brave,’ aimed at kids ages 6 to 10, helps readers recognize that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, but teamwork brings people together for the greater good.
“A cheetah named Rebel believes she can defend the island on her own, that she’s the fastest, that she’s the strongest, and the first time the pirate wolves come around, she gets her ass kicked a bit and has to go back and lick his wounds,” Waltz said. “In conversations with the other characters, she realizes that they can help her, and she can help them. That’s something we learn in special forces teams because I’m a Green Beret who served all over the world, but which I think applies to all aspects of life.”
Waltz said the characters “really sacrifice their own comfort through very tough training and drills” to successfully defend Freedom Island as a team. The book’s villains, known as the evil wolf-rats, represent forces that seek to suppress freedoms and rights, much like what Russia is currently attempting in Ukraine.
“As President Reagan said, ‘We’re a generation away from losing those freedoms,'” Waltz said. “I think now is the perfect time to start planting those seeds.”

“Kids will get one book a month. We’ve had other notable conservative thinkers and leaders like my colleague, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, former Navy SEAL. We’ve had Dana Loesch very late to talk about the right to self-defense who’s cooked in our There’s another book about the Constitution itself and how you have a founding document with a set of principles that would stand the test of time and societal pressures,” Waltz said. “Every book will have a different theme and most importantly, $15 from each subscription… will go to Samaritan’s Purse, who have done such wonderful work for Ukrainian refugees.
Waltz said the Brave Books are made in America and he doesn’t want retailers that rely on China and Chinese manufacturing to carry the product — even though being available on Amazon and major retailers would lead to increased sales.
“We have to lead by example,” he said.
Wlatz previously wrote the book “Warrior Diplomat: a Green Beret’s Battles from Washington to Afghanistan”.
