Lou and his Mane
by Emma Ugarelli
Lou is a brave young Lion who loves his mane. Everyone knows he is proud of it, but Lou has a secret. He is terribly afraid of going "bald". One morning, he wakes up to find his worst nightmare has come true: His mane is gone! Lou looks everywhere for his mane, but cannot find it. He decides to ask his friends to help. Giraffe, Snake, Monkey, and Crocodile work together to help Lou as he searches throughout the jungle for his mane. Finally, he spots something peculiar in the distance, slowly moving towards him. What could it be? Join Lou and his friends as they solve the mystery of the missing mane.
This book had a total classroom book feel to it. I could picture this being read to me in Pre-k or kindergarten. I like the way the words are written because it emphasizes certain parts. It helped my son (6 years) read it to my daughter (2 years). It has that classic feel to it where there's a problem with the main character and the friends band together to help them out. Always love those kinds of books for kids because it teaches them about helping and friendship. We liked the idea that the lion can just take off his mane as if it were a hat. And as a lot of problems happened in the home, the little sibling had something to do with it. Great story, fun illustrations. Just an overall great book.
