Tiger Tales: Great Storytime Picture Books

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I love to find pictures book that are fun to read out loud. A few weeks ago, I did a tiger storytime, and it was such a blast, I just had to share these great tiger picture books with you. If you’re looking for a book that gets your audience interested, give these ones a try!

Oh, No!

In this rhyming picture book, a series of animals falls into a deep hole, only to be saved at last by a very large rescuer. Kirkus Review wrote, “This picture book reads like an instant classic…oh, yes!”

It’s a Tiger
by: David LaRochelle
illustrated by: Jeremy Tankard

In this lively tale, a child imagines that he is in a story where he encounters a tiger at every turn. This fun story is a lot of fun to act out, too!

Le chat qui voulait être un tigre
texte par: Jean Leroy
illustrations par: Bérengère Delaporte

Rayé est un chat de salon. Il aurait bien pu se contenter de passer des journées tranquilles auprès de son maître. Mais le petit félin rêve d’une vie sauvage et surtout d’être couronné Roi de la jungle. À la maison, Rayé s’imagine en forêt: il bondit, s’accroche au divan et aux rideaux, éprouvant durement la patience de son maître.

And, as always, the more fun you have with these stories, the more fun your audience will have, even if it’s jut an audience of one!

Happy reading.
