The Tiptoeing Tiger by Philippa Leathers - OPTIONAL

Leathers, Philippa The Tiptoeing Tiger PICTURE BOOK Candlewick Press, 2018. $14. Content: G.  

Little Tiger is told by his older brother that he can’t scare any of the animals in the jungle.  Little Tiger tries to prove his brother wrong, but all the animals aren’t scared of him because he is little or because they could hear him coming.  Eventually, Little Tiger tries to scare a frog in the pond.  As he leans over the water to roar, he scares himself with his own reflection.  He is happy to report back to his brother that he can scare someone-himself.  

Little Tiger is adorable and the simple illustrations are well done.  I loved his attitude about scaring himself that he saw it as a success.  This is a cute book for younger readers.  

PRE-K, EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
