HASH(0x9eea1d08) out of 5 stars Sweet story Nov. 9 2011
By littlebird - Published on
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.
HASH(0x9eea1c48) out of 5 stars It's okay to be different Feb. 14 2013
By Alarna Rose Gray - Published on
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.
HASH(0x9eea1f6c) out of 5 stars my 3-year-old son loves it Nov. 15 2010
By Huang Mei-jung - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First we borrowed this book, a Chinese language version, from school library. The illustration is pretty good and full of the animals children will like. My 3-year-old son often picked it from several other books and asked me to read with him. Since it is a Chinese translation, the sentences do not rhyme (I learned this from the reviews written by other amazon readers). Therefore I ordered the English version which I find is a lot better. We like this book and I think we don't need to be critical about the story itself.
