K-Gr 2–A little girl learns to be brave with the help of a lion only she is able to see. No matter where she goes, her lion is always there. When she is scared to speak or say sorry, her lion gives her the courage to find her voice. When it is dark at night, her lion protects her. He is there when she needs him most, especially on park adventures. As she climbs the slide that looks taller with every step she takes, her legs start to feel weak. When she looks down, it’s decided: she and her lion will stay at the top of the slide until the end of the world! She looks back and sees that her lion is scared, too; she knows she needs to be brave for him. They can be brave together. Up and down, back and forth, they make a great team. This poignant read-aloud will remind readers that they can conquer their fears, whether big or small. The bright and vivid illustrations will enchant and inspire.
VERDICT A charming text that all readers can relate to and which will help them find the bravery within.
