Leo, an adorable little lion cub, does not roar unlike his parents and siblings. His father worries about him and thinks he's strange but his wise Mother says, "He will roar when he is ready." Leo doesn't roar because he focuses and listens to the world around him.
Three times his patience and listening skills save the lives of not only his family but the entire pride. The final dangerous, deadly occurrence that Leo witnesses has Leo erupting in a loud, long, clear roar that gets everyone's attention and gives him superstar status with the other lions from that time forward.
The moral of the story encourages parents and others to give kids time to grow and mature into who they are created to be. The illustrations are beautifully done and have a "Lion King" style which kids will love. The life lesson is invaluable for both the young and old to take away. I highly recommend this book.
