Reviews - What do customers think about The Lion's Paw (Little Golden Book)?
Far from Aesops Fable Jun 19, 2007
Far from the Aesops fable, those looking for this Aesops tale should shop elsewhere. However, if you want a simple repetitive and engaging story for toddlers, this is a nice one. Reads very much like The Little Red Hen (Little Golden Book)
Not a classic Feb 26, 2005
I purchased this book thinking it would be along the lines of the Aesop fable. It is not. The story reads like The Little Red Hen with the lion asking who will help him remove the thorn from his paw and all the other animals replying they are too busy. The mouse does remove it in the end but that's it, No moral no comment. Not much for your child to take from this book.
