Having had four little boys in my home (and two currently little) this book really brought a smile to my face. I'm sure moms of little girls can also relate to the constant dressing up and pretending. I had one son who was a dog for months. He wanted to eat on the floor and would only answer in yelps. He also pretended to be Santa for a full month too and we still laugh about that too.

Kids love pretending and that is what A Tiger Like Me celebrates! In this story everything is all about tigers. He is a little tiger and he has a mommy tiger and daddy tiger. It is really a cute tale with an even cuter ending. We really enjoyed this book and it lent naturally to doing a tiger craft!
I've Pinned a board of Tiger crafts to help inspire you as well!

“Child readers (and certainly adult caregivers) will identify with the book’s central message: Children can experience a wide swath of feelings, everyone makes mistakes, and everyone has complicated ways of interacting with the world. The final quiet pages offer a peaceful conclusion…Wildness is part and parcel of everyday childhood, embraced here with a roar.” —Kirkus Reviews
