LITTLE LION: WHERE’S MY MAMA?
E. Ford and T. La Porte
When little lion becomes lost in the Ethiopian countryside, he turns to other animals for help, but they are afraid to help him! Playful illustrations of endangered African animals like elephants and servals detail the sometimes tense relationships between predator and prey as little lion searches for his mama. Discussions about the food web and the circle of life arise naturally. This dual-language early reader is part of a series for the literacy nonprofit, Open Hearts, Big Dreams.
