I was meant to do this review way back in November and somehow forgot all about it. Um… whoops?
The Very Curious Tiger was written by Amina Kara and published by Prolance. You can get your own copy right here.
First off, I have to say that the title is adorable and puts me in a mood to love this book before even opening it. I love cats of all shapes and sizes and I have a large soft spot for tigers.
I love the notes inside! There’s one about the current problem we’re having with tiger population – they’re endangered which is incredibly sad and something that I’m really hoping changes for the better soon. And there’s one to parents and teachers, as well as a list of fun activities one can do with their child while reading the book.
All in all, there’s been a lot of attention paid to trying to make this book an easily usable teaching tool as well as a way to entertain young children which is lovely.
I also appreciated the inclusion of two articles about a time when a tiger truly did go missing – it’s interesting information for parents.
The Very Curious Tiger is a cute little book for young readers which helps with learning to count. It’s nice and short and the text has a cute rhythmic feel to it.
Final rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars.
