Lionheart | 狮心宝贝
Author / Illustrator: Richard Collingridge 理查德 . 科林里奇
Translated from: United States
Richard hears something in his room before bedtime. Is it a monster? He doesn't wait to find out and sets off running through the streets, over the hills, through the forest, and into the fields until he finds himself in a magical jungle. With the help of his stuffed lion Lionheart, Richard finds the courage he needs to face his fears.
Fear of the dark is a common fear or phobia among children and is part and parcel of growing up. But how do we deal with the fear that strikes every night? In this story, how did the boy overcome his fear? His beloved lion soft toy became his companion, escort and protector, giving him strength and immense sense of security.
Little Richard's adventure is highly relatable with our little readers and with a little explaining from you, they will understand that monsters don't exist. Our inner fears are the ones troubling our heart and the courage to overcome the fear comes from within.
This is a great choice for a snuggly bedtime read with your kids who need just that bit of assurance with his or her choice of snuggly.
