5.0 out of 5 stars What with Lion King imagery, a winner. 8 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not an ebook about Lion King, that said the graphics certainly make it pleasing n the young eyes.
As someone always looking to improve on the bedtime rituals, to make them engaging and rewarding, I found this ebook did that and get asked time and again to re-read it or "have you others like this one Grandpa"?
I take the level of questioning that arises as a measure of how good any book is. I recommend this ebook.

5.0 out of 5 stars The importance of forgiveness 25 Mar. 2014
By Matthew G. Sherwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Efrat Haddi has given us yet another exceptionally fine book for toddlers and young children, this time about the importance of forgiveness and learning from our mistakes so we can keep our friends and have great times playing with them—what a great message for the children to learn! (There are even some adults who could learn something from that lesson but that’s another story.) I should add that the beautiful and warm illustrations by Abira Das impress me greatly and grownups can happily bond with young kids as they read this book together. Moreover, the vocabularies of small kids will be enhanced as they read this book and that’s grand. I love it!

At the start of this short but very well told story, we learn that there is a lion cub named Leo whose father, Brave, “was the head of the pack. Brave was big and strong but all the other lions appreciated him because he was very smart.” Leo loves to play with his two special friends Rose who is about his age and Crown, a slightly younger lion cub.

However, trouble sets in when one day Leo and Rose want to catch a beetle sitting on a tree branch. Rose accidentally bumps into Leo and they “(fall) to the ground with a loud thump;” the beetle hears noise and flies away pretty quickly before they can catch it. Although Rose apologizes to Leo for bumping into him, Leo refuses to accept Rose’s apology and he ends their friendship then and there. Soon after Leo loses his other best friend Crown when Crown loses his hold on a fish they were hunting—Leo now refuses to accept Crown’s apology! Leo then comes to his father Brave and tells Brave he is upset that now he has no friends. Predictably, Brave tells his young son Leo that forgiveness is necessary for friendships to continue because Rose and Crown did not intentionally spoil the hunt for the beetle and the fish—and Leo soon learns the important lesson that he has to forgive his friends in order to have friends at all! But there’s another moral to the story: Brave also tells Leo that forgiveness can be a way for others to improve themselves by learning better, more successful ways to do things and not make mistakes.

There’s a little more to the story than just this; I’ve left a few details out to avoid spoiling it all for you.

I highly recommend this book for toddlers and young children just learning how to relate to their friends in a socially acceptable manner and realize that forgiveness and learning new ways to do things more successfully is important for any relationship (not just a friendship) to stay intact.

Great job, Efrat and Abira—please keep these very special children’s books coming! I only wish I had such wonderful children’s books when I was a small kid!

5.0 out of 5 stars `When we forgive others, we give them a chance to improve.' 27 Mar. 2014
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Efrat Haddi once again places before the public (especially aimed at children from the ages of 3 to 8) a book that simultaneously entertains and teaches. Haddi works with children in a democratic school where democracy is both a goal and a method of instruction. Her belief is that a democratic education brings democratic values such as justice, respect and trust to education, and includes self-determination within a community of equals. In this book she is joined by illustrator Abira Das once again, a sure sign that the message of the book will appeal to all children visually as well as intellectually.

The setting is Africa where Leo lives with his Head Lion father Brave and enjoys life with his other lion cub friends, Rose and Crown. A simple adventure ends in an altercation between Leo and Rose over a game to capture a blue beetle, Leo blaming Rose for ruining the capture and refusing to forgive her. Rose attempts to make amends and apologize but Leo refuses to forgive her. Leo ha another run-in with his friend Crown over catching a fish and once again, despite Crown's apology, Leo refuses to forgive. Now Leo has no friends wit whom to play and he seeks advice form Brave who states a strong leader must have qualities that include forgiveness. `"If we don't forgive each other and give our friends another chance, how can they improve?' Leo asks forgiveness for his anger to Rose and Crown and they once again become the best of friends.

The combination of a well-written story illustrated with excellent art that entertains and teaches at the same time has become a trademark with Efrat Haddi. She is bound to continue this successful venture! Grady Harp, March 14

4.0 out of 5 stars God's forgiveness. 3 Jan. 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a very good book to read to my pre-school kids. They enjoyed the story, however I was looking for a book that explained God's forgiveness. This book would have been better if it would have spoken of God's forgiveness.

It is a long book. My little guy lost interest before we finished the book. we have only read it through once. It would be better for an older child.
