Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


I'm Not A Scaredy-Cat

I love reading. 
I love reading to my children and have done so even as they were womb sheltered. 
They love reading now and enjoy it at all times possible and are even top million word readers in their schools! 

It's so important to spend the time with our children and pass on the love of reading. 

And when I find a new book, I'm always excited to share with them, you or my little biddies at church. 

The book "I'm Not A Scaredy-Cat; A Prayer for When You Wish You Were Brave is a perfect story for the little ones. 

We've all been called over and over to check the closet or leave the lights on or even stay with me until I fall asleep mommy requests. This book helps kids to have power over any fear they might develop. Encouraging them with words and actions will help them realize how to navigate their world with all the unknowns. 

I love this new book that gives kids the tools to help them when they are feeling nervous, or afraid.

I'm a big cat. 
I'm a strong cat. 
I'm not a scaredy-cat....
Except when...

From New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado comes I'm Not a Scaredy-Cat, a hilarious new picture book to help kids manage their fears and worries and learn to trust God. 

Follow a silly series of misadventures as scaredy-cat faces his worst fears; an appalling abundance of (gulp!) yellow, blue, and pink sprinkles on his donut, an elephant on the verge of a ginormous sneeze, and the terrifyingly loud chime of a clock. 

For each of the fears, Max provides this reassuring child's version of Philippians 4:6-9. 

"God, you are good. 
God, you are near.
God, you are here!
And, God, you love me." 

A fun read for children and parents, I'm Not a Scaredy-Cat will open doors for important conversations about fear in a non-threatening way and help you instill godly bravery in your kids. 

This is a fun and easy read for any family. 
I love that it's not complicated for the little ones to understand. 
And I am in love with the beautiful illustration in this book. Ms Shirley is quite gifted! 

I hope you'll grab this book for your bookshelf.
