While his mother and father are out, Johnny Lion stays home and reads his very first book--it's about a little lion just like him! But the little lion in the book does not stay home. He gores out into the tall grass all by himself and meets a creature with big white teeth and a tail that goes swish, swish, swish. The adventures in Johnny Lion's book are so real that Johnny Lion feels as if they had happened to him!

This classic I Can Read Book introduces the beloved little lion to children who are also just discovering the joy of reading. Edith Thacher Hurd's playful text is perfectly captured in the warm pictures buy her husband, Clement Hurd, the illustrator of Goodnight Moon.Johnny Lion's first book is about another little lion--just like himself--whose adventures young readers will enjoy along with Johnny. 'A subtle boost for the joys of reading.' --BL.
