Children's Literature
Johnny Lion is back in a story of a rainy day, and there could hardly be a more appealing lion. Today's children will identify with the little lion's activities just as their parents did years ago. The everyday events in the life of a child, who in this case just happens to be a lion, will reassure and entertain the youngest readers. This is an "I Can Read" book, and the playful illustrations will encourage children to follow along with Johnny's adventures. In this book, Johnny is sad because it is raining and he cannot go out to play. He has a raincoat and a rain hat but Mother Lion points out that he does not have any boots. Mother Lion is too busy to amuse Johnny so he must find things to do inside the house. Johnny fills the afternoon with imaginative play. Finally, Father Lion comes home and brings Johnny a pair of bright red boots. Johnny Lion goes out to play and, despite his raincoat and hat, he gets soaking wet but his feet remain dry in his new red boots. 2000 (orig. 1972), HarperCollins, $14.95, $14.89 and $3.95. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Carolyn Mott Ford
