Guion the Lion: A Colorful World by Rebecca Wilson Macsovits

Disclosure:  I received one or more products in this post in exchange of an honest review.  All opinions are my own.

I've shared with you, quite often actually, how much I love to read.  My love has blossomed into Allyson reading.  I couldn't be happier!  Especially when we get to take a look at books like the one I want to introduce you to today.

Guion the Lion: A Colorful World is a cute story where Guion the Lion wakes up and all of the color has vanished from his world.  He sets out on a journey to put color back in the world by finding the color switch.  Someone must have turned it off!  Throughout this fun story, Guion encounters quite a few other types of animals.  Through helping them, color can be restored!

Ally loves this book.  In fact, she enjoyed this story so much she took her copy to share with her Summer Reading Program at school!  The students had been learning about animals in the Savannah, so it worked out great!

Guion the Lion: A Colorful World 

Where did all the color go?

That’s the question an irrepressible little lion asks in the brand new children’s picture book titled “Guion the Lion: A Colorful World.”

Guion (rhymes with “lion”) is a rainbow-colored lion who stands out in a world of black and white. He wants to find a way to bring back the color, but how?

While on his quest, Guion encounters a variety of animals, each struggling with a unique problem. Always kind and friendly, he does his best to help.

To his delight, Guion eventually discovers that every time he helped someone, a little, much-needed color comes back into the world.

By story’s end, even shy Pangolin and crabby Monkey have learned that it’s okay to give and receive help from someone who isn’t like them. It makes the world a more colorful place!

About the Author: 
Rebecca approaches life with a sense of adventures and continually seeks out new people, information and challenges to keep her invigorated. She is convinced her BS in mathematics from Wake Forest University and the MBA earned at the Owen School at Vanderbilt helped prepare her for the everyday demands of work and family. Although the majority of her career has been spent in marketing, her true creative spirit launched after the birth of her first child and continues to be cultivated by all three of her children, ages seven and under. Even though she is a southerner at heart, Rebecca and her husband, Mac, reside in Colorado. To help balance her career and creativity, Rebecca runs marathons and she also boxes.

Rebecca’s oldest son, Guion, who has Down syndrome, inspired her to write her first children’s book. Guion brings a tremendous amount of joy to his family, and Rebecca regularly witnesses his siblings asking him for help because they know he is able to give it. She doesn’t want people to discount his abilities just because he’s different. Rebecca’s hope for her first book, “Guion the Lion,” is to encourage young people to give and receive help from others who don’t look exactly like them – afterall that is what makes our big world such a welcoming and colorful place.
