Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown
It is author Peter Brown’s opinion that everyone should find time to go a little wild, as does Mr. Tiger in this new picture book. Bored by city life and proper manners, Tiger decides to venture out into the wilderness. Soon the other animals join him and find time to be wild, too.
While reading together one-on-one, talk about the different animals in this book and ask your child to identify them. The animals in the book also use some fabulous vocabulary as well. Talk about words that may be unfamiliar such as “peculiar” and “magnificent,” and help your child define them. Of course you’ll need to practice your very best “roars” as you read together. Talking about words and meanings helps expand your child’s vocabulary and is a great way to get ready to read!
