Father of Lions is a beautifully written reminder of all the things we take for granted every day. It was truly eye opening to read this knowing it's a true story. It reminded me a bit of the novel "The Power of One", which my English teacher recommended in high school. Now that I've grown up and am a teacher myself, I will definitely recommend Father of Lions to my students. If I had the freedom to choose books outside the curriculum, I would definitely have a unit on it. For now, it will have a space on my classroom bookshelf for students' leisure reading. If you're looking for something thought provoking, this is the book for you! I would love to hear some interviews with the author in the future.
