From its sunny orange and yellow endpapers to the expressive watercolors inside, readers will be cheered by the simple tale of jungle animals each of whom has a talent that bests the skills of the king of the jungle. The elephant is stronger, the monkey able to climb higher and faster and the cheetah runs faster. The animals laugh at Lion’s clumsy attempts to outdo them. The lion cannot find his talent until he roars—and realizes he is the “very, very best at roaring.” And . . . when the lion roars, nobody laughs. The choice of a larger font size will allow reading aloud to a group with ease and will encourage emerging readers to try it on their own. Bright, cheery and a great book design. A simple but fun read. (Picture book. 4-8)
