Lion Practice

Now that Monkey is back at school it’s so very quiet here, but during the holidays I could certainly empathise with the mother of a little girl called Laura that we meet in Lion Practice.  Written and illustrated by Emma Carlisle, this new picture book was released through Pan Macmillan at the end of July.

Lion Practice

In Lion Practice, we meet Laura, a little girl who likes to make a lot of noise as she practices to be all sorts of animals, from a crocodile to a kangaroo. Her Mum would like her to pretend to be something quiet, but Laura has a different plan, it’s time for Lion Practice.

Lion Practice

But chaos ensues as Laura gets into trouble with her Mum and her Dad with her pretending, she even wakes the baby. She runs outside, feeling sad, she just wanted to be the best lion she could be.

It’s time for some reassuring bear hugs from her parents and some tips on how lions can have fun without creating havoc wherever they tread.

It’s a lovely little tale and one which I think all families can relate to.  Priced at ££6.99, my Amazon Affiliate link is shown below for your reference.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
