"EASY TIGER..!" As my gran use to say to me when I was growing up. I don't seem to hear this verse that much now, but it brings back memories of my youth.
This is a delightful story and it puts childrens anger into perspective. the stroy is about a girl called Emily who has a terrible temper and when she gets angry she "ROARS" to get her way. Into the story comes her Grandma who is also a tiger, but a friendly mild mannered Tiger. The illustrations fit the story well; they are bright and detailed.
The story allows you to explain that Tigers that Roar and have tantrums are not very nice and that one should strive to be like grandma Tiger who is also a tiger but a very mild mannered one. It allows you to explain that screaming and shouting is not the way a tiger behaves and by being kind, helpful and well behaved is the best way for a tiger.
Although, my son doesn't have many tantrums as i like to think he is well behaved the odd times he did start playing up, I explained the story and he understood. He is 4 years old and he understands the story and the motive behind what it is trying to explain to him
I thoroughly reccomend this story for all the "incredible Hulks" out there.
