Format: Paperback
Mumsi lives in a village in Kenya, surrounded by family and friends. All his life, he and the other children have been told fantastic stories about the most feared of all the jungle creatures--the simba, the lion. The lesson of the stories was always the same: if you see a lion, don't move. Just look it in the eye and stay very, very still. Mumsi never imagined he'd need the lesson, until one dark night when he's alone on the mountain . . .

Mumsi Meets a Lion is a wonderful little book! It takes you on a trip to a far-off land and a culture far different from our own, capturing little ones' imaginations from the start. Throughout the story, the author introduces Swahili words for a few of the animals, which adds still more flavor. My preschooler sat enthralled through the whole thing, hiding her face from the noises Mumsi heard and clapping with pride when he stood brave.

This children's book carries a central theme we all appreciate: the importance of listening to and remembering what your parents teach you. Mumsi Meets a Lion demonstrates the lesson in a colorful adventure, complete with gorgeous illustrations that perfectly capture the setting. I definitely recommend this book for anyone with children from preschool through early primary school. And parents, you're going to love it too!

No children of my own, but I've given this book as a gift to three children in the target age range. The kids love it--and so do their parents. For my gift recipients, the book was their exciting introduction to the African culture that is the setting for Mumsi. The style of the illustrations "matches" the cultural setting. Positive theme is pervasive, clear--yet doesn't distract from plot. Just the right length. Books are my top choice for gifts for children, and I'll be buying and giving more copies of Mumsi.

Mumsi Meets a Lion I read this charming book and wanted to share it with my three-year-old grandson. He enjoyed the book and has begun to learn some of the native terms that Ms. Segall has incorporated in this uplifting story. I highly recommend it!
