Is There a Lion in My Kitchen? by Kevin Fobbs (Author), Kimberly Sponaugle (Illustrator)
David’s day may have started out ordinary but by the time it had ended he will have journeyed on an exciting adventure all right in his home! David was in the middle of his late morning playtime. Suddenly there was a mysterious sound coming from the kitchen. David wondered what it was. He went to see what it could be. To his amazement he could not believe his eyes! Is There a Lion in My Kitchen, he thought? Well we, like David, will just have to see; for David is about to meet a fun-loving delightfully rambunctious lion cub named Leon who creates a mountain of messes to help this young boy learn to be responsible. Wow! There are a lot of messes and a few lessons to learn! Join David as he tackles each mess and lesson with an understanding that every child will come to appreciate and love. Leon does everything in the spirit of fun as well as adventure. Loads of amusement and responsible play are all part of the escapades. Be prepared to share the antics of Leon the entertaining lion cub who pokes fun and eventually helps David learn life lessons about becoming a “big boy” and responsible young man.

In our opinion the book is a 5 star book. We recommend this book to ages 3 to 10 year olds. It’s very impressive that Dawud told his Grandpa this story when he was two.
Aiyannah – Annah (10), David is a young boy who loves to play with his toys. The problem is he never picks them up. One day he hears a roar in his kitchen. He puts on his bear mask and the adventure starts. David learns a very important lesson that day, it is important for all kids to learn. I think it’s a 5 star book because it teaches children to clean up when they are told to. It teaches children to try to be responsible and help around the house. I am impressed that Dawud told his Grandpa this story when he was little. I also love the part where it says “Children obey your parents in the Lord for this is right” This is a down right good book!! I really like this book.
Tyla (9), I think it’s a 5 star book. I think it is really good for kids to learn to pickup their toys when their parents say so. I would recommend this book to 3 to 10 year olds. It’s very impressive that Dawud told his Grandpa this story when he was two. I really liked this book too and we had fun reading it!
