Wasn t in the best conditions Great book lovely story We re going on a lion huntWe re going to catch a big oneThrough the long grass, the swamp and the lake, two girls decide to go and hunt a lion they re not scared We re Going on a Lion Hunt by David Axtell is a beautifully illustrated African retelling of the classic story Full of magnificent animals, this fun and engaging rhythmical story is perfect for little adventurers everywhere Beautiful fluid illustrations that fill the eye, and an engaging short story with which you and your child can employ lots of hushed or LOUD voices, whilst telling the tale My child is two and he really enjoys reading this book with me. Children enjoyed this story Lovely repeated refrains for the children to join in with. Same story, but set elsewhere and searching for a Lion instead We loved the multi cultural aspect of this book and enjoyed learning about other people s lives and all the animals surrounding them. What a fun book My 2 year old loves this book At the daycare he is in, they have turned this book into an activity clapping, running on the spot, falling to the ground.I bought this for myself and mirror what they do at dayare and he absolutely loves it. We all know the story of the bear hunt well I love this version Set in Africa, the two girls set off on a lion hunt Beautiful pictures of the African savannah, and a lovely story line of two black girls I shared the story with my preschool group who equally enjoyed the story. There is no comparison between this and the original We re Going On A Bear Hunt The illustration graphics in this run off are really very bad, the tale is truncated missing out two adventures along the way and the illustrated pages at the end are in the wrong order Making it a lion hunt is a good idea, but once you ve read the original it comes up lacking.
