Leonard loves to be different. Leonard doesn’t fit the norm for lions, and he behaves contrary to others’ expectations. Leonard dreams and writes poems. He is also a friend with Marianne, a duck! The last time I checked, lions eat duck as delicious meals. Who heard such a pair again? Leonard explores his world and the way the world thinks, and that’s different from his way of thinking.

How to be a Lion is a beautiful book about mindfulness, being true to yourself, the necessity of difference, and respect for others. Ed Vere nails it down once more with this book and the matters he discusses, and that is why he is award-winning and New York Times bestselling writer.

The book can easily be read by kids at the age of 3-7 and more.
