The Lion and the Bird

Staff Review: The Lion and the Bird

"The Lion and the Bird" by Marianne Dubuc

Cover: 'The Lion and the Bird'


Lion kindly helps a bird who is cold and wounded and provides a warm place for the winter. They have a lovely time together, but when spring comes and bird's flock returns, he has to join them. This heart-touching universal tale about friendship, love and the ties that bind us is wonderfully told, and simply, but beautifully, illustrated. Preschoolers, their parents and grandparents will love it!

Audience: Children | Genre: Fiction, Picture Book
