Book Review : Scaredy Cat


This is a sweet children’s book by Max Lucado.  It is really a great book to teach children how to face their fears.  We all have fears, we all have worries, but dwelling on them does not help us!


This book has a rhyming poem that children will have memorized before you know it, and it is one that they can recall when they are facing something that scares them or worries them.

I felt that this story was very engaging for children, my daughter read it with me and enjoyed it!  The illustrations are great and eye catching, but the truths of the message are what really resonate!

More about Scaredy Cat :

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 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 nonthreatening way and help you instill godly bravery in your kids.

NOTE : I received a copy of Scaredy Cat from Frontgate at no cost.  My review is my own opinion.
