Lion Lullaby

author: Kate Banks
illustrator: Lauren Tobia

Little lions everywhere listen to eveningís sounds.
The wind is crying.
Trees are sighing.
Itís time to run along home.

The sun begins to set on the savanna, and ten little lions must find their way home before dark. One by one, lion cubs emerge from trees, past bouncing monkeys and braying zebras. They cross a stream, watch a herd of thundering wildebeest, and explore the darkening beauty of the landscape. As the moon rises, ten little lion cubs curl up together just in time for bedtime, under their mothersí watch in a space that is cozy and warm. Kate Banksís gorgeously melodic text, paired with Lauren Tobiaís charming illustrations, create a lullaby to ensure the sweetest of dreams.

Follow ten lion cubs as they make their way home through the savanna in a lulling, lyrical read-aloud that gently introduces counting to young ones.
