It's a Tiger!

When I get back to doing Family or Preschool Storytimes, I'll be sure to include David LaRochelle's new book, It's a Tiger! It's just the kind of story that I like to share most, somewhat silly, and begging for audience participation. The child narrator is telling us a story about monkeys in the jungle, when a tiger barges in. He is big, stripey, and has sharp teeth. Run! Jeremy Tankard's colorful pictures provide clues to the observant reader, who will never be surprised by the tiger's next appearance. A fun surprise ending completes this great storytime share.
