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!
