“Cecil’s Pride” the True Story of a Lion King by Hatkoff
is the new must read non-fiction text. The story of Cecil and the important lessons learned are both captivating and heartbreaking. Hatkoff tells a story of Cecil in such an amazing way that by the time we were done reading, Cecil was incredibly real to all of us.
Kids truly understood the importance of protecting lions and their role in a pride and overall ecosystem balance.
There is plenty of additional information about Cecil online. Still, the book’s images and story telling is perfect for students ages 8 – 13.
We loved, loved, loved this book.
