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.Little lions everywhere listen to evening’s sounds.The wind is crying.Trees are sighing.It’s 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 mothers’ watch in a space that is cozy and warm. Kate Banks’s gorgeously melodic text, paired with Lauren Tobia’s charming illustrations, create a lullaby to ensure the sweetest of dreams.
The painterly, realistic illustrations create the feel of approaching night, transitioning gradually from golds, browns, and greens to dreamy mauves, violets, and grays. . . . Ideal bedtime read-aloud.—Kirkus Reviews
