Baby Bloomers- Tigers

Today it finally feels like summer, it is probably to hot to actually plan a trip to the zoo with the little ones, so instead we brought the zoo to them.  I wanted a Zoo Theme and ended with books with tigers or about tigers finding their way.  The illustrations and colors are ideal for this group, the text a bit on the long side but not horrible long.  They loved Nose to Toes You Are Yummy! the end page has a nice soft fur kids loved to touch. 

We read
