Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What animal can run about 35 miles an hour and may eat 70 pounds of meat in one meal? A lion, of course! These facts along with many others make this book an interesting, educational, and fun book to read. Facts concerning the lion, such as what he eats, where he lives, and who his enemies are prove to be fascinating to learn about. Do you know the difference between an Asian lion and an African lion? Read this well-written book and you will find out the answer along with learning other true facts. At the end of the book are some myths and legends about the lion. A short quiz helps the reader to recall what he has read. The photography in this book is excellent with close ups of lions and their surroundings. This book is one in the "Amazing Animals" series. Teachers, parents, and children alike will enjoy reading about the King of the Beasts. Lions would be a great classroom tool. Web sites are given at the end of the book so the reader can learn more about lions and other wildlife. 2004, Weigl Publishers Inc, Ages 6 to 9.
