I'm Not A Scaredy Cat
Number one New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado will delight you and your family with the silly, new board book I’m Not a Scaredy-Cat. Laugh-out-loud funny, yet filled with an important message that God is near so there’s no need to fear, kids will learn to put into perspective those things that frighten or worry them.
I’m a big cat. I’m a strong cat. I’m not a scaredy-cat . . . except when . . .
I’m Not a Scaredy-Cat will take children on a silly series of misadventures as the cat character faces an appalling abundance of (gulp!) yellow and pink sprinkles on his donut, an elephant on the verge of a sneeze, and the terrifyingly loud chime of a clock. For the over-the-top yet funny things our character is fearful of, Max provides a biblical way to overcome fear by adapting his teaching on Philippians 4 to a child’s level.
To avoid introducing new fears to children, this whimsical story depicts a cute cat character facing fears that are fanciful or exaggerated. These silly scenarios will create talking points for parents to help their children understand what to do when they feel afraid.
Though the fears and anxiety may or may not be justified, the scriptural teachings and biblical antidotes to fear are real. When put into practice, Lucado’s teaching will help both children and their parents face their fears, manage their anxiety, and trust God. This book will have kids laughing as they learn critical life lessons:
“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 in a nonthreatening way and provide helpful tools that can be applied to help kids manage their fears and trust God. Now available in a board book format, this is the perfect book for your entire family—big and little kids will love this story of bravery and faith!
Featuring the artwork of Illumination and Moonbeam Award–winning illustrator Shirley Ng-Benitez and full of Max’s signature warmth and wisdom, I’m Not a Scaredy-Cat is the perfect story for you and your little ones to enjoy together for years to come.
