Saturday with Boo and Mister-- And Christian the Lion

A little while ago, I received this book in the mail for review. (Might have been Goodreads First Reads or Shelf Awareness... honestly can't remember.)


It is adorable! And I don't just mean that cute lion on the front.

This great little picture book is set up as Christian's "scrapbook" with just a little text and a lot of photos of the lion and his "family".

Mister insists that it's about Simba. But then he also thinks the two guys are the lion's mommy and daddy.

Boo thought it was good that Christian gets back to the wild. Because that's where he should be and a lion is just too big to keep as a pet. (Yeah, we had that discussion. Really her wanting a lion is the last thing I need right now. I'm not even ready to give in on getting a dog!)

Mister is far more interested in the pictures than the text... heck, I think Boo is too... but that's okay. Because really it's a book of pictures more than anything else.

Between the pictures and the interesting, but not overwhelming, text, this one is great for a nice wide range of ages.... like say 18 months to adult. :D

Plus, folks, Christmas is coming. Are YOU buying books for Christmas? You might want to add this one to your list!
