Publisher’s Synopsis: In the third installment in her Live Big Series, best-selling, award-winning author Kat Kronenberg takes readers back to the wilds of the African savanna where the animals not only still struggle to find food, but now they face life-threatening situations. They must fight to survive and are terrified.
But when our beloved moody Baboon challenges Kudu on what to do, everything begins to change. One by one, Kudu, Giraffe, and Bee are faced with the dilemma of who they want to be. After watching Bee choose to do good, Baboon figures out a new secret: We can light the stars in our hearts, empowering our lives, once we smile big deep within, truly believing in who we are, our ideas, and the importance of caring for others.
The danger continues to mount and Baboon finally gets so scared that he cries out for help. Luckily, some fun animals and Baobab Tree come to the rescue! Will they try the new SHHH secret so their collective ideas not only help all the animals survive but thrive together so that their dreams can come true?
Once again, Kronenberg creates a mythical evolution story of some of nature’s most fascinating characters to teach young readers foundational skills for life in this case, helping them build a loving community that knows the joy of gratitude, giving, and going for the extraordinary. Through playful dialogue and beautiful illustrations, readers learn to take a deep breath when life gets hard, connect their heads to their hearts, and celebrate their best lives as they problem-solve together. As with Dream Big and Love Big, Kronenberg includes hands-on activities at the end of the book and on her website. Her dream is that the whole experience will inspire young readers everywhere to learn to think big together.

About the Author
Bestselling author Kat Kronenberg brings her energy and experience to her award-winning picture books, DREAM BIG (2017), LOVE BIG (2019), & THINK BIG (2020). Her vision began with a smile she calls “A U-Shaped Bridge” that can connect us to everything—our head to our heart, our lives to one another, and our dreams to the hope of something Greater. With the tragic loss of both parents, two siblings, a quest for meaning, and the example of incredible mentors, she created her LIVE BIG SERIES. The series shows us, no matter what happens, how to celebrate our best life with the power of our smile. The Heroic Journey, the African animals, in her books take, alongside her website, give readers fun and dynamic ways to achieve their best life too. Kronenberg’s ability to inspire audiences to believe in themselves, each other, and everyone’s dreams has also positioned her as a coveted keynote speaker and presenter for schools.
