I'm Not A Scaredy-Cat - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Tommy Nelson.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Overview:

Number one New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado will delight you and your family with the silly new picture 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.

My Review:

A hardcover book written in rhythmic form, I'm Not A Scaredy-Cat shows an adorable cat who is not afraid of anything.....except caterpillars, leaves, elephants, and so much more.  The cat tries to be brave but has fears and worries.  When he becomes anxious, he says a prayer and feels much better.

Whether warranted or not, most children have fears.  They want to be comforted and know that they have support.  Although this book may not be the end solution to quashing a child's fears, it's a good step towards it.  This book illustrates that fears are normal and that saying a certain prayer may help during those times.  The suggested prayer is quick and catchy.  It's told three times throughout the book to help with memorization, and I think it's a positive way to help loosen the hold of fear.

Win It!

One person will win I'm Not A Scaredy-Cat hardcover children's book.

They do not like to get up in front of a group of people. We talk about them just looking at a family member and act like they are talking to them.

My daughter is really anxious about something happening to our house -- "Mama, what if our house breaks?"

We've got a question-and-answer ritual -- What if our house breaks?/Then we'll fix it/What if we can't fix it?/Then we'll hire someone to fix it/What if THEY can't fix it?/Then we'll move to a new house -- that we run through every night.

My youngest son is afraid of monsters in the dark. It actually didn't start till he was 5, had no problems then one day decided he was scared.

I am afraid that the world will not get any better for my grandsons and children. That people are losing the one command that our Lord gave to each of us To Love One Another.

Back in October we had three armed men rob our house while my husband was at work and me and my 3 children were sleeping. This keeps us with nightmares and staying awake.

My daughter hates loud noises and a local attraction keeps up all up with it's outrageous noises every weekend and my daughter wakes up so afraid every few minutes. It's horrible seeing a child so scared. :(

I am afraid of cockroaches and extreme heights! My kids are pretty young so they are afraid of normal kid things like the dark. :)

I am afraid of heights. I'm OK under certain circumstances. But I can't even stand to look at a pictre of anyone standing near a cliff. I'll get dizzy ffrom fear just thinking about it.

My 5 year old is afraid of any unpredictable flying bug. One of my favorite pictures is of her older sister holding a butterfly on her finger with a big happy grin on her face, while the little one looks on in terror as one flies near her head. She'll ride any roller coaster that she meets the height requirement for, but don't let a butterfly near her!
