When Lions Roar

When Lions Roar

by Robie H. Harris Illustrated by Chris Raschka

When Lions Roar is a caring and reassuring story of a young child who faces his fear and makes his world a safe place again.

2012 Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka and bestselling author Robie H. Harris pair together to create a comforting story for young readers when their world becomes unsettled.

Thunder is booming!
A big dog is barking!

Sometimes the world seems scary — too scary. But what if you shout, "Go away!" Will the sun come out? Will a flower bloom?
