A child and her lion have a one-of-a-kind friendship in this vibrantly illustrated story of overcoming fears—and being there for each other when it matters.

No importa lo rápido que vaya o en dónde acabe, mi valiente león va conmigo: ¡mi león siempre está ahí!

Cuando una niña esta con su león, ¡ella se siente capaz de hacer cualquier cosa! Cuando le da penita hablar o le da nervios pedir disculpas, su león le ayuda a encontrar su voz. Su león, que es grande y valiente, la protege; él está en su equipo.

Pero un día en el parque, la niña decide subir una resbaladilla nueva, que es altísima, y la niña descubre que a veces hasta los leones tienen miedo. ¿Le tocará a ella ahora ser valiente? Ahora que su león la necesita, ¿podrá ella sacar las fuerza para ser un león para su león?

De la talentosa autora e ilustradora Erika Meza, nos llega una historia sobre una amistad única que está llena de amor, valentía y solidaridad.

No matter how fast I go, or where I end up, my brave lion sticks with me—my lion’s always there!

When she and her lion are together, one little girl feels like she can do anything. Whether she’s afraid of the dark, or too shy to speak and in need of finding her voice, her big, bold companion always looks out for her. But one day, the inseparable pair decide to climb the new, dizzyingly high rocket slide at the playground together, and the girl discovers that even lions sometimes get afraid. Can she summon the strength to be his lion when he needs her? Joyful, expressive artwork glowing with bright primary colors brings to life the story of a special bond—and a child’s discovery of unexpected courage.
