It is no secret that the books Bo likes best are the ones he can really get involved with- the ones he can interact with, talk to and touch. Well, Britta Teckentrup has done it again. With DON’T WAKE UP THE TIGER, she is back with another winner for the toddler set, an interactive book that will have your little ones squealing with anticipation and begging for a reread.
In this adorable book, a tiger is sleeping right in the path of several other animals- all of whom are in a BIG hurry- and carrying a bunch of balloons to boot. How will they ever get past the tiger without waking her up? And where are these animals going anyway?
DON’T WAKE UP THE TIGER scores big with Bo, my almost two year old. It is so simple, yet so effective- the kind of story that fills kids with wonder and makes them excited to pick up a book and sift through its pages. How can we keep the tiger sleeping so these other animals can cross his path? We can gently pet her nose, blow the balloons to keep them high above her, rub her tummy, and even rock her and sing her a lullaby. Will it work? You have to get it to find out. Don’t miss this one for your toddlers. If your little ones are like mine, get ready: it will be on constant repeat in your home.
