Min Me Corner is a post I created here on the blog, it's a place where I can showcase Children's books that I have read with my kids. This week we have another great Scholastic book to share with you. One that will be released next month and as a mother I'm excited to share it with you!
Author: Richard Collingridge
Publisher: Scholastic Press

Pages: 32 pages
Richard hears something in his room before bedtime. Is it a monster? He doesn't wait to find out and sets off running through the streets, over the hills, through the forest, and into the fields until he finds himself in a magical jungle. With the help of his stuffed lion Lionheart, Richard finds the courage he needs to face his fears.
The first thing I want to say about this wonderful story is that if you have a child who is scared of anything, this is the perfect book to read to them. It's one that teaches them that we can overcome our fears! I adored this story and watching my child mimic the ROAR part made this Mamma proud. The illustrations are perfection and so beautiful, so much so that my son couldn't keep from touching them.
The story shows a child who is running from his fears and has a toy lion with him named Lionheart, but at some point Lionheart becomes real and not just a toy. This giant lion teaches the boy that to overcome your fears all you have to do is ROAR and have fun. I really enjoyed reading this book to my son, he has autism and is afraid a lot, so this has become one of our new things to say. Let's be brave like Lionheart. I would love to thank this fantastic author for bringing this book to life and sharing it with the world and my son. Also thanks to Scholastic for sending this to me for review, it's perfection.
If you have a child whose scared of anything, you should read this book to them. I love books that teach a lesson and this one is a beautifully written one. Fair warning my son likes this book so much now that we have been reading it every night for the past week. Another reason I love it so much!
If you haven't guessed, we are giving Lionheart an Ali's Bookshelf...
