This week’s weekly read is The Lion who wanted to love by Giles Andreae and David Wojtowycz.
Leo the lion doesn’t fit in. He isn’t fierce or strong; he doesn’t want to hunt or kill. He just wants to love everybody.
He soon discovers that not fitting in is hard and he is told he has no place in the pride. So he sets off into the jungle where he makes many friends and helps lots of animals.
When Leo finds himself in trouble everyone comes to help him including his mum who realises that the most valuable gift there is is love.
A great picture book exploring issues of love, community and relationship.
