Call it Courage by Armstrong Sperry

Mafatu is terrified of the sea. This disappoints his father, the chief of the Polynesian Island where they live. Mafatu becomes determined to conquer his fear of the sea and sets off in a canoe.

Call It Courage is a pleasant story. It reads fast and teaches a nice lesson on conquering fear. I recommend it to middle grade kids.
