I Want a Mini Tiger by Joyce Dunbar


I Want a Mini Tiger by Joyce Dunbar

This little girl wants her very own miniature wild animal. Anything from a little snappy happy crocodile and a tiny trundle rumble elephant, to a pocket-sized grizzly bear. But as her big brother explains, a real wild animal would make a terrible pet. You can't nuzzle a crocodile, or tickle a wild elephant, and a grizzly bear belongs in a cave not a pocket! But there's one pet, a tiny pet, that loves to be tickled and cuddled. It's like a tiger, only much smaller...This is a delightfully rhythmic tale, bursting with imagination, and a playful introduction to a world of wild animals.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
