About The Book
As Little Leo and his mother walk along the riverbank in the African grasslands, he watches all the animals playing and leaping around and gets an idea…what if he jumped to the top of that mountain in the distance?
The young lion cub leaps again and again. But he trips over his paws, falls into mud, and never makes the top of the ledge. He assures Mama he only missed because of the way the wind was blowing or maybe the bugs that flew in his face—next time, he’ll get there for sure! With Mama’s encouragement and his own determination, can the proud young lion make his leap?
