Journey to India and discover ways to control a hot temper.
MALLIKA is a tiger with a temper. Her short fuse is ignited first by her infuriating brother Ben and then by a mischievous band of jeering monkeys. Short-tempered Mallika even manages to get mad at herself!
It takes Mallika a while to figure out that being angry is no fun and that a tantrum doesn't make things better.
India's Ranthambhore National Park is the scene of Jami Parkison's powerful story about perseverance and managing anger. Once the private hunting grounds of maharajahs, Ranthambhore is now a wildlife sanctuary and home to the magnificent Bengal tiger. Under ancient banyan trees and among ruins of palaces and pavilions, this now endangered species rules the landscape. Ranthambhore is home to a host of exotic species, including leaping sambar deer, the regal peacock, the imposing tree-pie bird, and the revered langur monkey. Artist Itoko Maeno captures the mystery and excitement of Mallika's world in compelling watercolor illustrations.
So journey to India and Mallika's world and meet an amazing little tiger who learns amazing ways to control her hot temper.
A SURPRISE and added bonus is the "Enrichment Information" which includes lots of facts about India, India's People, the Ranthambhore National Park, the Peacock, the Sambar, the Banyan Tree, the Cicada, the Tree-Pie, the Langur Monkeys, and best of all, the Bengal Tiger. This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in interesting description.
A second big plus is the "Letter to Parents and Educators" which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with young readers about the message of the story...learning to manage and control anger and temper tantrums. So even though on the surface this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.
