A whimsical and playful rhyming picture book about a young boy who imagines himself as a tiger to overcome his fears — only to realize that he can trust in God.
Meet Tim Bone. He has a big imagination, and when it roams wild, he’s afraid of a lot of things. He’s scared of the moon and the wailing typhoon, and he won’t wear his sneakers because he fears hidden creatures. Tim’s nervous at home, at school, and at play!
Fed up with being frightened, Tim comes up with a bold He’s going to become a tiger so he can be fiercer than his fears! There’s just one If he’s a tiger, he can’t be Tim. Could there be a better solution? What if Tim puts his trust in God—who made both boys and tigers—instead?
If I Were a Tiger invites kids of all ages to live in the comforting truth that no one has to carry their fears alone, and offers the reminder that God is only a prayer away.
Tim Bone is afraid. Of everything. So he decides to become the fiercest creature he can think of – a tiger. Tigers are brave and strong and can face anything. So, Tim faces life with the strength of a tiger (and a tiger costume to help him out). Whether running toward lightning or prowling through trees, bathing in a lagoon or sleeping in a cave, Tim can do it all. But … he realizes that other things would change. His friends might be scared, his brother wouldn’t want to play, and he couldn’t do the things he loved. It dawns on him that God created him, Tim, just as God wanted him to be. God is right there and so Tim can be even stronger and braver than a tiger.
This sweet picture book helps children realize that God creates them just as they should be and it is all right. This is a highly recommend.
