Lion Lessons are necessary if you’re going to take your Lion Diploma. After some upward Lion and downward Lion stretches you’ll be ready for training with a Pro. It will be demanding!
Your lessons will include such leonine staples as pouncing and choosing what to eat, prowling, roaring and springing Then there’s looking out for your friends. Are you up for that?
There’s a touch of Maurice Sendak about this title; maybe the lion costume is reminiscent of Max. However, Lion Lessons, by acclaimed picture book maker Jon Agee, is all its own, unique, intriguing, funny, curious story. I love the bold white framed images, the changes of perspective, the expressive black outlined characters. Most of all I love the message, which is subtle, warm and witty. This is a picture book to be read, shared, reread and loved.
