Mumsi Meets a Lion is a book for early readers written by Kim Stegall and illustrated by Kimberly Batti. This picture book has delightful color illustrations that will capture a child’s attention. Set in an African village in Kenya, the story tells of the boy Mumsi, who must remember the important lesson his parents have taught him.
If you meet a lion, don’t move. Don’t breathe. And whatever you do, don’t run. No one has seen a lion near Mumsi’s village for many years. But on the plains below the mountain, the simbas hunt for prey. And one night, on the dark forest path, Mumsi meets a lion.
