I have spent a fortune on my daughter’s books and recently I realised just what a God sent is our local library. We went and got our library cards and the adventure started.
Ruby is definitely in love and she asks daily when are we going back to the library. She likes to pick her own books and walk around the isles discovering new titles every time. Last week we picked The Lion Who Wanted to Love by Giles Andreae and David Wojtowycz. Needless to say I enjoyed it as much as little one did and I decided that this would be the winner for this month’s Kids Love to Read edition.
It is a feel-good rhyming story about a brave little lion who dares to be different …
Leo isn’t like other lion cubs. Instead of chasing zebras and antelopes, he wants to make friends with them.
But can a lion who’s so different ever fit in with the rest of his pride?
The Lion Who Wanted to Love is a very touching story which highlights the importance of being yourself and not needing to be like everyone else. It is one story I highly recommend to be read to children. The authors are the same that wrote Giraffes Can’t Dance, another loved story in our home.
I think it will be proper suited for toddlers and reception children, giving them an important message about loving one another and offering help in need.
Last month, our post regarding Best New Children’s Books was a hit and thank you to everyone who dropped by and left a comment with #kltr.
