    Tiger Tales Books Teach by Guest Blogger Kristi from Kristi’s Book Nook

    Tiger Tales Books share some of the most creative and fun stories any child would love. Tiger Tales books offer lively and colorful illustrations that teach children to recognize colors, shapes, letters, numbers, and even animals and objects. Some stories have snappy rhymes that allow the words to roll off the tongue, thereby creating a unique and fun reading experience. But that isn’t all these wonderful books can do. Parents and teachers will be impressed with how these books build knowledge and comprehension through application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.

    What does this all mean? Stories all have a common thread. They put readers into situations where they have to recognize a character’s problem and see how it is solved. Readers will learn to identify motives and causes by compiling information and possibly coming up with their own alternative solutions. At the end of the story, readers can make judgments about what they’ve read and validate the idea of the ending and present their own opinion about the story. If you think this might be a bit much for your young reader, all you have to do is try it.

    I put this theory to the test with one of my favorite Tiger Tales books by Jane Chapman, Hands off My Honey! If you look at the front and back covers, you can see the characters that will be found inside the pages. The images imply what the story could be about. Once inside the pages, readers will soon discover that the characters found on the back cover are plotting and planning to get the honey from the bear, and one is afraid. What the reader will have to figure out is whether or not the bear is scary or friendly. The front cover may give it away.

    You may not realize it, but when you sit down to read one of these wonderful books from Tiger Tales, you are already asking your reader about the cover, the title, and what they think the story is about. As your child flips through the pages, he or she will have discovered the what, when, where, how, and why of the story. This can happen by just looking at the pictures. Soon, he or she will recognize and learn the words, too. The most important thing to remember is to just have fun and enjoy the story together.
