PreS-Gr 1–After hearing men and dogs in the jungle, Mother Tiger and her two cubs, Puli and Sera, set out to find a safe, new home. After trying out several potential spots, they begin to despair. “Wait here little ones,” said Mother Tiger. She gives them a loving nuzzle and disappears into the shadows.” At last, the female tiger finds a remote, secluded home for her family. The stars of this book are the gorgeous, digitally colored charcoal illustrations of Bengal tigers that look real. It’s easy for readers to imagine themselves on this journey to find a new den. For example, when roaming the deepest parts of the jungle, there is a spread of giant trees and below in the river, Mother Tiger and her cubs are swimming to shore. Young readers learn about tigers and their habitat in a way that will be interesting to most children. This title can be used in a variety of ways from a storytime with a group to an individual bedtime story. The back of the title has more information about endangered Bengal tigers.
VERDICT This engaging tale may inspire young children to want to learn more about these beautiful creatures and where they live.
