Teckentrup, Britta Don’t Wake Up the Tiger. PICTURE BOOK. Nosy Crow (Candlewick), 2016. $15.99.
PRE-K – ESSENTIAL
A group of animals need to find a way over a sleeping tiger. They have some balloons that come in handy, but what helps the most is interaction from the reader, who is asked to pet the tiger and blow the balloons. Thanks to the readers, everything looks like it will end well, unless that mouse can’t hold onto his balloon.
This is an adorable and wonderful book! It would be a joy to read with a Pre-K child. I wish more books required interaction from the reader, children have so much fun with that! The story is great too, especially the surprise ending. The artwork is simple and bright enough to share with a group.
