From New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado comes I’m Not a Scaredy-Cat. This book is a silly, fun, and faith-building picture book to help kids manage their fear or anxiety.

This whimsical story depicts a cute cat facing fanciful, exaggerated fears. These silly scenarios will show parents how to help their children understand what to do when they feel afraid. Kids learn that God is good, God is near, God is here with them, and, most important, God loves them.

Whether our fears and anxiety are justified or not, 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. It will help manage their anxiety, and trust God. I’m Not a Scaredy-Cat 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.”

I’m Not a Scaredy-Cat will take children on a silly series of misadventures as the cat character faces exaggerated fears. Read about an appalling abundance of (gulp!) yellow and pink sprinkles on his donut. Experience 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.

I’m Not a Scaredy-Cat will bring a timeless message of faith over fear to children.

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.
