The Heart of a Lion and the Body of a Cat by Shani T. Night is an illustrated children's book that tells a great story. The protagonist is a young lion who would do many things but cannot because he is sick. However, he is determined to get his way. Whenever he feels strong enough, he does whatever is forbidden to him, such as running, playing, and dancing. The result is that the young lion gets tired and sick every time. However, when his mother, who has always tended him, gets sick, our hero will learn an important lesson. The Heart of a Lion and the Body of a Cat is a book inspired by the story of a girl who has Sickle Cell Anemia, and it will help raise awareness about this issue.
The Heart of a Lion and the Body of a Cat tells a delightful story and, at the same time, teaches a great lesson to young readers. I believe that the story of the young lion can help children suffering from Sickle Cell Anemia because it will give them a model to follow and great encouragement. Also, it can inspire healthy children, who, after reading the book, will surely know how to relate better to their sick friends. Author Shani T. Night did something wonderful by writing The Heart of a Lion and the Body of a Cat. I recommend it to all parents who want to read a lovely and instructive story to their children.
