Elf Reads: The Lion Inside

The Lion Inside

About this book:

A mouse feels small and insecure and determines that what he needs to do is learn how to roar like a lion. He knows he has to act brave when he approaches a lion to learn how. In a hilarious turn of events, the lion is afraid of mice! The mouse comforts the lion, they become friends, and we learn that there’s a lion and a mouse inside all of us.

Recommended by Christine because…

  • This is a fun book about taking control of your situation, to be able to say “Enough!” and to step out of your comfort zone.
  • The author uses the adorable little mouse to encourage children that no matter how little they are, they are capable of making a change in their life.
  • Paired with fun and colourful illustrations, the book is approachable enough to engage its audience yet meaningful enough to speak to them.

    For: Ages 4-6 or anyone with a little mouse who just needs a little coaxing to make a big roar.
