Tiger Tales, Spring 2010

Checkin' in here to see what's new with Tiger Tales this Spring and to share our favorites from the season. I've highlighted this publisher before because I think their books are pretty special. Every season a new batch of them are delivered to my doorstep and I have to say that this is one of the most fun boxes this household receives. Why? Because it is guaranteed that everyone in the house will find at least one title that they LOVE! (Well, maybe excluding Daddy. I don't think he cares so very much. But he's happy that the rest of us are happy.)

Tiger Tales has some GREAT new books out - including Bella the rabbit which is my personal favorite for the Spring.

Speaking of which - the winner of the Bella giveaway is: Melanie L (whose daughter is looking forward to some new summer readers!)

Congratulations! You are well on your way to enjoying some fun Tiger Tales titles!

As for the rest of you, don't forget to check out Bella and you might want to check out some of these as well.


The Best Pet Ever - the story of a little girl who would really, really like a pet. She asks her mom but the mom keeps replying, "We'll see." Nothing daunted, this little girl has a very active imagination and finds pets! She finds a rock she names "Fluffy", a soft woolly glove she names "Nibbles" and adopts a balloon she names Bruce. Each pet is individual, special and unique and she loves them all, one by one. Do you think she'll ever get a "real" pet? Well, I'm not into spoilers around here. =)

I LOVE the illustrations in this book by Deborah Allwright. They have a great 1950's flavor to them and both Bookworm1 and myself enjoyed this tale as a result.

The Very Greedy Bee - is the story of a, well, very greedy bee. He finds the motherload of pollen and nectar but chooses not to tell his fellow bees. Instead he enjoys the feast all by himself and then becomes too large to fly home again!

This is a cute story about greed and learning how to share.


Animals Go - is one of the new releases from the "Touch, Look, and Learn" series of books. The second title just released is called Animals Talk . Both of these titles have raised areas on these board book page spreads which keeps his little fingers going! He explores each page and is really starting to differentiate between animals and the noises they make. (I love it when kids start mimicking animal noises.) Definitely a winner of a book series and these were fun to see.

This Little Piggy: And Other Favorite Action Rhymes - is a padded board book and an absolutely amazing favorite. It contains ALL of our favorite little finger rhymes and it keeps them nice and short so that we can get through the rhyme before losing Bookworm2's attention. It includes Pat-a-Cake, I'm a Little Teapot, Row, Row, Row Your Boat and other familiar favorites. I love this title because all of the songs are familiar. There wasn't one that we didn't know and so we were able to sing and finger play our way right through this and totally enjoyed doing so. The illustrations by Hannah Wood are cute and cartoonish and have great appeal to the little guy.

This book is a total winner.

But then again, we think the majority of their books are winners.

Thanks, Tiger Tales, for committing to producing quality reading materials for children (and their adult readers!)

(Excited to check out your new website too, btw.)

All of them look like great books. Thanks again for the Bella book giveaway. My daughter is looking forward to reading them. She has been excited to check the mail every day to see if it has arrived! I have to keep telling her she has to give it a little time before it gets here! :)

I love Tiger Tales books and so did my students. I kept them in my classroom and the pics and rhyming text always kept kids coming back for more.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. My pout was in response to a nasty email I got from somebody telling me that they stopped visiting me because I am boring now but I should still visit them and comment everyday because they are and have always been entertaining. She is delusional, but that was no reason for me to flip out on everybody. I was tired and in pain and cranky.

The gift card contest is still going on. You and Barbara are entered.
