Mr. Tiger Goes Wild

Book: Mr. Tiger Goes WildMr tiger goes wild

Author/Illustrator: Peter Brown

This is one of those magical picture books that relays different meanings to different age groups. To little kids, it’s a fun story about silly Mr. Tiger who gets… wait for it… naked (or “nakey” as my boys call it). Oh the joy, hilarity and shock of a nakey character! Huzzah!  For older audiences, it has a deeper message about social rules and conformity. One that asks you to question what societal rules put pressure on you, why, and which ones with which you think you can and should live.   The illustrations are thoughtful and effective.

A great book for parents or teachers to use to talk about standing on our own feet.
