<span style="font-weight: 400;">Library Lion is a great story about a lion that wanders into a public library. No one is sure what to do, but it turns out that the lion loves listening to the books the librarian reads at story time. Until one day when he roars in the library and the librarian makes him leave. The book is read by the actress Mindy Sterling. </span>
Use in Class
Having books that students can listen to during language arts and literacy centers is a great way for some of my struggling readers to hear books read, listen to what fluent reading sounds like, and be able to read books that are age appropriate for them but may be above their reading level. This would be used during the reflection phase of PAR as I would have them summarize the fantasy elements of the story and generate questions they have after reading the book.
