The Vegetarian Leopard

GENRE: Pre and Primary School ages

Children, parents and grandparents will have lots of fun and laughs reading this endearing story about a carnivorous leopard becoming a vegetarian!  By the book’s final page you should all be singing along about the benefits lots of veggies bring to having a healthy diet! 

This cheerful, positive and engaging story is fun to read and sing-a-long to the bright and catchy tune, it really got our feet tapping. Patrick Baker’s obvious love of the ukulele and singing delivers the “Eat your veggies every day” message in an appealing way, enhanced by the beautiful and expressive colour illustrations. Enjoyed by our school, grandchildren and adults alike, my wife and I highly recommend this book and downloadable song.
