From the I Am A Little... series - a series of delightful books each concentrating on a different animal. The beautiful illustrations make these titles particularly appealing, with just enough detail to draw adults and children alike into the animal's world. In this story, children are introduced to the world of the lion, as one cub explores his territory and introduces young readers to a variety of African animals. These books are perfect for children who have just learnt to read, as most of the words are monosyllabic and repeated, to aid memory retention, whilst those which are longer are phonetic, which expands both vocabulary and knowledge. The format of these books is ideal for children wanting to read and establish independence from their parents, as they are small in size, perfect for small hands, and are presented like an adult publication, which boosts confidence in those engaging on independent reading.
