Praise

Praise for Renato and the Lion:

* “This love letter to Florence should spur diverse conversations, from art to history to the plight of refugees.”—Booklist, starred review
 
“Driven by the notion of safeguarding art during military conflict, this debut portrays a wartime reality that is not commonly addressed. A special book and additional purchase that is best-shared one-on-one.”—School Library Journal
 
“DiLorenzo’s often lovely watercolors are best when capturing nature. The endpapers’ sun-washed Florence and Renato’s dream-ride over the moonlit Ponte Vecchio are lovely…DiLorenzo’s careful research yields a touching tale about art’s ability to deeply affect both adults and children.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Barbara DiLorenzo’s tale was inspired by a true story and shows how a child’s connection to art lasts a lifetime.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch
 
“DiLorenzo lavishes attention on Florence’s architectural treasures, and her buildings glow with warmth…DiLorenzo’s story is simultaneously a historical account of a family’s emigration and a dream story about the power of great art.”—Publishers Weekly
