Daring to be different and ending up the leader of the pride Sept. 7 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Fantastic book for 2-5 year olds. Great rythm and vocabulary. The artwork is well suited for children. Still one of my favorite books for bedtime.

Sweet story Nov. 9 2011
By littlebird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a really sweet book. Leo doesn't want to hunt his prey, he wants to be their friends. As he is outcast from his pride, he stays true to his inner self. He makes many friends along the way! This book really encourages not always going with the flow and being a true friend and peace maker. His pride comes around to seeing that he truly is a king. Great little story for instilling sweet values and confidence in young ones.

Not one of Giles Andreae's best June 26 2010
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Giles' books. We have most of them! Our favorites.. Giraffes Can't Dance and Rumble in the Jungle. But this one did not meet our expectations. First of all, the mother sends Leo away! What mother would ever send her child away? It doesn't make sense. Also, I don't like all of the references to death. And "biting through the skin" of the zebra. It's definitely not good for young children.
It's okay to be different Feb. 14 2013
By Alarna Rose Gray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This story has been a hit with my nephews for some years.

It is an endearing tale of a lion who prefers to hug, rather than hunt, the animals in the jungle. The illustrations are delightful, and the verse rolls off the tongue.

Though the story may not be true to what really happens in the wild, to focus on that is to miss the point.

The beauty of the story is in its simple, rare message:

- That it's okay to be different.
- That when you give love freely, it comes back to you.

A must have for you and the kids.
