I'm sitting in the time-out chair because my mother put me there. She said, "You try my patience, child! I do not like it when you're wild."
Who me?
That is so absurd.
How could she even use that word?
If I were a lion.
I'd growl and roar
And knock the dishes on the floor...
AND if I were a bear...
If I Were a Lion is a book for every child who's ever been sent to the time-out chair -- unjustly...or otherwise!

This book is wonderful I have read it over and over again to both my son and daughter and they love this story and the artwork is beautiful

My son was very diisappointed with this book as it did not discuss lions.
-- I was very disappointed with this book as it seems only to teach children to make excuses for bad behaviour.
