Check It Out: Year of the Tiger

Submitted by J. Johnston on Wed, 02/16/2022 - 10:24

It’s the Year of the Tiger, hear me roar! I think we all know how awesome tigers are, but do you know who really loves tigers? Kids! And I’ve known more than one youngster (myself included) who wanted to be a fierce tiger—ROWR!

To help celebrate this amazing big cat, I want wannabe tiger cubs to have a tiger-filled reading list. Picture books are the main focus—“Go Get’em Tiger!” “Tiger Tiger,” “The Tiptoeing Tiger,” and “When a Tiger Comes to Dinner”—but I’ve also included two children’s nonfiction titles that will inform little ones about real tigers and tiger behavior.

I think we can all agree that reading about tigers is Grrreat!
