I really loved hearing about Christian the Lion. I remember watching the popular you tube video showing their reunion.

Absolutely!! I read it and fell in love with the story!! Christian looks like one of my kitties at home and I pictured him as a large lion playing around the house. I think kids would love this book! :)
