I love the message of Lizzy the Lion. Its ok and often necessary to ask for help. As an adult even we need the encouragement to ask for help whether its asking a friend or spouse or asking God for his help. And its ok to do so. I also love that my son enjoyed reading the book just as much as my daughters did.
One of the best parts is the manner in which the book is written, those who are not yet Christians can also read this book to their little ones and enjoy it. And then it can be used to share the gospel by showing that we can have the same courage as Lizzy to ask our heavenly father for help.

Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Cute bookNovember 2, 2017Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My daughter and I both enjoyed this book. It is very nicely illustrated and captures the audience's attention. It is intended for younger children, but my daughter who is 10 and still struggles a little with her reading ability, enjoyed reading it. The moral of the story is to get involved but also to know when to ask adults for help.
Lizzy, a young lioness, thinks her parents still treat her like a "baby". She struggles with the fact that everyone else seems to be able to do "big" things except for her, but one day something happens and she realizes that even though she is little, she can make a difference. The important part is that she does not attempt to do it on her own, instead she prays and gets help. Because of her courage to stand up for someone in need and wisdom to get others involved, Lizzy becomes a hero.
Children will learn a valuable lesson from this story - be willing to stand up for those in need, but be sure to ask for help and recognize that sometimes the situation will requires someone bigger than you!

Both of my girls are older than the targeted age but they both enjoyed this story and looking at the beautifully done illustrations.
There is a lovely faith message, a true valuable lesson about families and caring for each other, and it is engaging, encouraging children to look and learn. It also teaches that parents have rules for a reason so you don't get hurt.
This will be a lovely addition to your family library, church library, or public library. Also recommended for day cares, nurseries, and as a gift for your favorite young child this coming holiday season.

Lyndsey4 Stars Out Of 5Great message!September 27, 2017LyndseyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I love Lisa Bevere and having a daughter, I was so excited to see this book coming out. While it is a bit wordy for my toddler daughter, she did enjoy looking at the pictures. I believe she will grow into it. The message is so great. It's so important to know that being brave isn't something you have to do all on your own. And what an important message to kids that you have a voice and no one can take that away. It's ok to ask for help. Such a sweet book!
