"Can we really
raise a lion?"
But it was Christian who decided to answer his question. He padded over
to the two men and looked up at John - he wanted to play. He stretched up
to place his paws on John's chest, then licked his face.
delighted by Christian's show of affection.
" I think we can!" Ace whispered.
Christian was home.
Christian the Lion
is about a lion sold at a department store. Luckily, he was sold to two
loving and understanding men, John and Ace. When Christian gets too big to
live in their basement, they bring him to Africa so he can be free. After
bonding with Katrina and Boy, two lions who also need to be released,
Christian must learn to be a "real" lion. One year after he is released John
and Ace come to visit and are pleased when they see he has formed his own
pride and still remembers them.
I would recommend Christian the Lion for grades 4 and 5. This book
is based on a real story and you can watch it on YouTube. The last
12 pages in this book are interesting facts about Christian, some real
characters from the story and some other animals that come from Kenya.
There are also some pictures of Christian with captions. I like all the
funny things that Christian does.
I would recommend this book for grades 4 and 5 because it was easy to read
but some parts of the book are hard to follow. I liked how right away you
got into the story. There was good detail, which made it easier to follow.
The story is very heart warming and has a good ending because it doesn't
really leave you hanging but it doesn't tell you EVERYTHING! Also this book
didn't take a REALLY long time to read and I liked that.
I give Christian the Lion 5 golden stars!!!
