Stop That Lion: A Tale of Friendship Love and Peace (Kingdom of Mir)Stop That Lion: A Tale of Friendship Love and Peace by Lois Wickstrom
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stop That Lion is a good story for little kids. I read it with my 8 year old, and he enjoyed it, but i would say his age is the limit. My favorite was when I read the last page and looked over at him, and he was smiling and said she’s smart! The book is a take on the Lion and the Lamb story. There are two kingdoms side by side. One kingdom has sheep and the other has a lion. The lion keeps crossing over, and eating the sheep. The king asks for solutions to the problem, with the stipulation the solution must be fair. Several people fail, and then Winnie approaches the king with her solution. Initially, she is disregarded because she is a little girl, but she presents her case, and the king allows her to try. This teaches us that you sometimes need to rely on others when you’re in need, and should listen to all, without judgment. The illustrations are bright and colorful and aided the story along.
