Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is ask for help! Encourage your little ones with the true meaning of bravery through the beautiful story of Lizzy the Lioness by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Bevere.
Boys and girls will love the story of Lizzy, a little lion who must learn what it truly means to be brave in the face of hard things. When she sees someone in danger, Lizzy tries her best to help, but she quickly learns that sometimes being brave means asking adults for help.
With a unique spin on the concept of bravery, Lizzy the Lioness is a timely picture book in an ever-changing world. Children will see that bravery is so much more than big muscles or loud roars but often is found in the tiniest people who have the courage to speak up when no one else will. By asking God for help and then bringing grown-ups into the picture, Lizzy shows kids that being brave doesn’t have to happen by yourself—it happens with help!
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Bevere’s first picture book will make waves with its unique and compelling message for families everywhere. Parents and children alike will enjoy the beautiful artwork as well as the story of communication and teamwork.
You don’t have to be the biggest to be the strongest, and you don’t have to be the loudest to be the bravest. Show your children God’s truest definition of bravery with the timeless story of Lizzy the Lioness.
Lizzy the Lioness is about a young, adventurous lion cub that wants to be big and brave. She loved to explore and go off on her own and really dislikes nap time. She is like a lot of the young kids that I know. She makes a friend and when that friend is put into danger she must be the bravest ever and find the courage to ask for help versus getting involved.
This was a very nice story. Lizzy is, like I said, a lot like the children I know. She wants to learn and explore (and not nap). She is learning a lot the bigger she gets and is understanding more about how to be brave and what that means. The book does a great job leading up to the action and the illustrations are detailed and fun to look at, and overall the lesson of the story is a wonderful one. For the lesson here alone, I think this is a good book for a children's collection.
