Bright colors, engaging characters and an inspirational theme combine for an instant classic in Guion the Lion: A Colorful World (Inspire On Purpose), by Rebecca Wilson Macsovits.
Guion (rhymes with “lion”) is a rainbow-colored lion who stands out in a grey world. He wants to find a way to bring back the color, but how? While on his quest, Guion encoun-ters a variety of animals, each struggling with a unique problem. Always kind and friend-ly, he does his best to help.
To his delight, Guion eventually discovers that every time he helps someone, a little much-needed color comes back into the world.
Rebecca Wilson Macsovits approaches life with a sense of adventure and continually seeks out new people, information, and challenges to keep her invigorated. 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 eight and under. To help balance her career and creativity, Rebecca runs mara-thons and also boxes.
Rebecca’s oldest son, Guion, who has Down syndrome, inspired her first children’s book. He brings a tremendous amount of joy to his family, and Rebecca regularly wit-nesses his siblings asking him for help because they know he is able to give it. She doesn’t want others to discount his abilities just because he’s different. Rebecca hopes her first book, Guion the Lion, will encourage young people to give and receive help from others who don’t look exactly like them – this is what makes our big world such a welcoming and colorful place.
