Little Lion wants to be the loudest, the biggest, and the prettiest animal on the savannah! But when the other animals outdo Little Lion again and again, who will lovingly remind the discouraged young cub that there are many ways to be the best? (New paperback edition) AGES: 0 to 3 AUTHOR: Constanze V. Kitzing has wanted to be a children's book illustrator from the age of 6. After years of study and a stint at a weekly news magazine, she made the leap to completely devote her time to following her dreams. Now, her books have been published in more than 14 countries, and looks to her two small children for inspiration. She lives with her family in Cologne, Germany. SELLING POINTS: * One of three simple, humorous books featuring a gender-neutral main character, Little Lion, and a host of other fun sub-Saharan African animals. * Parents and caregivers can use Little Lions' humorous quest to be "the best" to start conversations with young children about their own self-esteem. * The surprise twist at the end of the book offers a touching message to small children about the importance of family and their own power to boost others' self-confidence.
