“When Little Cub was born, Big Golden Lion just couldn’t stop kissing him.” So begins this irresistible tale set in the African savannah. As he plays outside before bedtime, Little Cub finds that the other animals agree with Big Golden Lion. Jumpy Monkey kisses him behind his prickly ears. Squawky Parrot gives a “pecky parrot kiss.” Big Fat Rhino gives a nuzzling nosy rhino kiss. But what happens when Mean Green Hungry Crocodile comes along? Whimsical, softly shaded artwork keeps young eyes entranced, while the repetitive storyline lets youngsters “read” along and act out the book’s sweet interactions with their parents.
