Hold your Temper, Tiger ( Ages 2+ )
By : Carol Roth & Roshin
Publisher : North South Book ( April 2017 )
Here is a great book for all those little tykes who cannot hold back their temper tantrums, coming from two award winning picture book creators. The tempermental little tiger stomps his feet, cries and yells everytime he is asked to do something he does not want to...until one day, when his mother has had enough and threatens him "You had better hold your temper, Tiger,....or else!..." The little Tiger is a bit shaken. "What could mommy`s "or else" mean?" he thought, "Maybe it meant no playtime / Maybe it meant no dessert" And he decides to hold his temper, but how? And where? From holding it in his pocket to underwear he thinks of many alternatives but finds the best way to hold his temper in the end....
A very short book which is ideal for very young readers. The engaging text is short, simple and funny. And is well supported by colorful illustrations. The anger itself has a firery red image with a face whch is expressive and obviously would keep the young readers occupied! The combination of text and illustrations together makes a strong impact on it`s readers and may make them rethink about their tantrums.
