Christopher finds a kitten on his doorstep, which, to his surprise, grows up into a lion! Since Christopher already loves his pet, he tries to introduce him to his everyday life, much to the horror of his friends, family, and neighbors.
Lions Can't Eat Spaghetti is a lighthearted children's book for ages 3 to 6 that celebrates the special bond that all children have with animals.
This is such a sweat story about a little boy and his stray "kitty" that ends up actually being a baby lion. Sadly, as the cub grows up the boy must learn that even though he loves his cub dearly, it is not safe for him or his beloved lion to keep him any longer. In a way the book is a little heart breaking, but it has a wonderful message to it that is essential to life. Sometimes the things we love the most in the world, are not necessarily good for us and we have to let go out of love.
This book really hit home for my son whose father had to go away a few months ago due to drug and alcohol abuse. He obviously did not want to let him go and be away from his father, but for everyone's safety and because we love him, we needed to do what was best. This book made a great tie in for my son that he could relate to the little boy and loving someone so much, but needing to let go.
Great book overall that is easy to recommend that has a positive message, with excellent illustrations that tie the story together.
I received this book free of charge from the author
