The Lion Inside by Rachel Bright is a picture book about risk-taking, courage, independence and self-awareness.
A timid mouse attempts to make himself heard after being ignored by the other animals in the jungle. He tries to roar after seeing the respect the lion commands. “So he made himself brave and he thought like a WINNER. He set off for the top..hoping not to be dinner! It felt like the scariest thing he could do…But if you want things to change you first have to change YOU.” Surprisingly, the mouse finds out the lion is scared of mice when he asked him for help. As a new friendship develops, they realise that first impressions are not always what they seem.
