Sun Flower Lion

We rated this book:

Highly acclaimed author and illustrator Kevin Henkes captures simple beauties of nature in his new picture book Sun Flower Lion. In the first couple of chapters, he introduces the sun with its radiant rays and calls attention to a flower in bloom with its lion-like appearance, its yellow petals a glorious mane. In chapter three, a male cub surges up a hill to take in the sweet essence of the flower. In four, he dreams he’s surrounded by a field of magnificent flowers, of which he discovers are actually cookies instead. When he awakes from his slumber in chapter five, he has a ravenous appetite and quickly races home for supper. Then, in the final chapter, he cuddles alongside his family, at peace with the world.

This short, concise chapter book is ideal for young children learning to read. It’s written at a kindergarten to first grade reading level, featuring a limited number of words on each page. Each chapter is only two to three pages in length, just enough to excite little ones exploring their first book of this sort. The illustrations, which feature an array of basic shapes, have a sweet simplicity, appearing in white, black, and yellow hues only. Sun Flower Lion is easy to comprehend and features common things of interest to children ages four to seven, making it a perfect addition for homes and classrooms of preschool and early elementary school-aged students.
