The second book from June Smalls and Yumi Shimokawara looks at the life cycle of mountain gorillas featuring their mighty strength and gentle hearts. 

He is the king. He leads his family, his troop.

His silver back shows his age and experience.

He guides them through thick forests and steep mountains.

The majestic mountain gorillas live in family groups, led by a powerful silverback. Juxtaposing the apes’ awesome strength and surprising gentleness, He Leads tells the story of family loyalty and love. With stunning, lifelike illustrations and facts on each page, this beautiful picture book is a monument to these endangered gentle giants.
