Lion Lullaby

By Kate Banks
Illustrated by Lauren Tobia

Follow ten lion cubs as they make their way home through the savannah in a lulling, lyrical read-aloud that gently introduces counting to young ones.

The sun begins to set on the savannah, 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 cosy and warm. Kate Banks’s gorgeously melodic text, paired with Lauren Tobia’s charming illustrations, create a lullaby to ensure the sweetest of dreams.

  • Kate Banks' melodic text is one parents will love to read aloud to their young ones.
  • A gentle introduction of counting elements and savannah animals that's perfect for bedtime.
  • Lauren Tobia's charming illustrations bring this soothing lullaby to life.
