about

When the good-natured  Share the Lion, King of all the animals, sees his reflection in a pool of water, he gasps at the fierce creature staring back at him and is too frightened to drink – until finally, he learns to overcome his fear. Children learn through Share how to deal positively with the fears and inhibitions that so often arise from situations they may not yet understand.

 

This is one of a series of stories collected by Idries Shah – a Teaching-Story – used for hundreds of years in the East as an educational instrument to help children understand life. This story was originally told by the 13th century Sufi poet Jalaluddin Rumi.

 

Ingrid Rodriguez's beautiful illustrations bring the story to life with warmth and humor and a distinctive richness of detail.

 

 

La historia de Share el Rey León y sus amigos de la selva va a entretener y a enseñar a los niños del Occidente como lo ha hecho con los niños del Oriente durante muchos siglos. Esta historia proporciona una herramienta con la cual podrían superar miedos muchas veces causados por el comportamiento de otras personas o por hechos aún difíciles de entender.

 

Cuando Ingrid Rodriguez ilustró este cuento les dio vida a los animales con humor y calidez. Sus ilustraciones muestran la gran cantidad de detalles ínfimos, e inesperados, característicos de su estilo de trabajo.
