Lavi the Lion leaves his pride (family) to find his new home and pride and has a wonderful adventure on the way!
The book offers great factual information from the Pittsburgh Zoo about lions.
Our preschooler enjoyed Lavi and his journeys. S/he discussed the different places lions can live.
This was a fun book to read through slowly with lots of conversation along the way.
This book is an allegory to the journey of life and the different families one is part of along the way.
Whether you further draw out the themes of life and change for discussion; talk about a pending/recent move or a shift in family dynamics; or build on an interest to learn more about lions, it's easy to bring this book to life.
