There's a Tiger in the Garden by Lizzy Stewart - OPTIONAL

Stewart, Lizzy There’s a Tiger in the Garden. PICTURE BOOK Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016. $18. 9781328791832  

When Nora gets bored at her grandmother’s house, she is told to go play in the garden with the tiger.  Nora doesn’t believe there is a tiger out there, but as she goes through the garden her imagination starts to see the impossible.  When it’s time to go back inside, the tiger says it will be out there any time she wants to come out to play.  Nora goes back into her grandmother and confirms that there is a tiger in the garden.  

This is a cute book about using your imagination.  Nora’s adventure through the garden is colorful, but the illustrations aren’t overly appealing.  The message is clear that using your imagination can be fun.  

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