Mama Tiger, Tiger Cub

Candlewick. May 2019. 16p. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781536206777.
Toddler-PreS–Mama and her cub are outside exploring on a beautiful day. They catch fish, climb trees, watch birds, smell flowers, and enjoy the day. Readers will enjoy finding the cub as the little one hides from Mama, an ear here, a tail there. As with Black Bird Yellow Sun, Light uses ink and cardboard printing and collage to make vivid and attractive illustrations that will be appreciated by a broad audience. Parents and educators may be inspired to pair peekaboo, hide-and-seek, or stomping and roaring as enrichment activities with this book.
VERDICT A simple and appealing board book, a recommended purchase
