A Tiger Named Lee
This is a lovely book with a simple message about fear of trying new things or meeting new people that would resonate with all children. Young tiger Lee is afraid to leave the safety of his tree for fear of the possible scary creatures on the forest floor. His Mam is kind and patient and doesn’t push him into facing his fears until an accident happens, forcing him to face his fears and discover the wonders of his world. The central message is that most people, or in this case animals, are nice and kind and that often it is our imagination that creates fears and dangers.
