I See a Lion is a new local book from author Elaine Macdonald and illustrator Vanessa Mearns. This fun story about animals wearing woolly winter clothes will make your children giggle as we see a lion wearing socks, a crocodile with a hat and even a warthog in a jersey.
Why is the lion family dressed in warm winter clothes? The lion explains that he wants to keep his family warm because winter is coming and he wants to avoid his cubs getting a cold. Moms with little ones will know the struggle of winter and sniffles, as well as the challenge of keeping kiddies warm.
As we meet a baboon, snake and lizard all kitted out too we’re left wondering who is knitting all the clothes for the animals. Before long we see a busy spider using her spinning skills to make sure everyone stays warm for the winter.
Children love stories about animals and there are plenty of wild ones to meet in I See a Lion. The rhyming tale is also filled with descriptions of different colours you can discuss with your kiddies.
We enjoyed I See an Elephant and I see a Rhinoceros and we’re happy to add I See a Lion to our collection now too.
I See a Lion is available from bookstores and online retailers for a recommended retail price of R90. It’s recommended for children aged 3 to 6 years.
