Description



About the Book



A lion cub wants to emulate his father, the king of the pride.



Book Synopsis



From a New York Times bestselling author, this heartwarming and richly illustrated story of love between a father and son lion is the perfect read aloud for Father's Day and beyond.

Kito wants to be just like his papa, the protector of the pride. Throughout a day and night on the savanna, the cub imitates the way his father roars, swings his tail, shakes his head, and pounces. Kito may be too little to catch a wildebeest, but he is brave enough to succeed in his own hunt. Someday he will be King, just like Papa!

With its rhythmic text, dramatic moments on the African plain, and playful times for cub and papa, this is the perfect book for parents to share with their own littlest cubs.



Review Quotes




"The acrylic illustrations are larger than life and show the expanses of the savannah but remain warm and kid-friendly, especially in the lions' depth of expression, ranging from curiosity to impatience, from concern to pride. The pacing is superb, with just the right amount of drama for the youngest readers yet awash with reassuring paternal love and care for young Kito."--School Library Journal

"The personification of the lions allows the love between father and son to radiate throughout both the text and the luscious full-page colored illustrations. The book's rich, rhythmic language makes it a good candidate for reading aloud to a group. At the same time, its quiet nature makes for a good one-on-one sharing, too."--Booklist

"The warm and reassuring flow of the text coupled with the dramatic painterly scenes of the African landscape come together for a likable tale just in time for Father's Day."--Kirkus Reviews
