My Thoughts:

A young boy is left under his sister's care for the day and he follows her around trying to get her to read him  his favorite book about a tiger.  But her answer is always, "later".  She is focused on a book of her own and the music she has plugged into her ears.  So he tries another tactic.  He pulls the earplugs out of her ears and screams, "I'm hungry!".  So she fixes him a bowl of soup and goes back to her book and music.  

Just as he starts to eat the soup lo and behold there is a tiger in his soup. Yep, a growling, stalking, furious tiger!  This little boy decided to take on the tiger all by himself.  When his sister sees him carrying on like a wild child, she picks up his book and read to him while he ate his soup.  Did this take care of the tiger or will he still there somewhere?

The author has written a fun, adventurous tale about a young boy's imagination and his attempt to tame a tiger.  Imagination is a wonderful tool it makes reading so much more fun.  She shows our children how to enjoy a book even if you can't read.  The illustrations depicted the story so well that the young boy's imagination created his own take of the story.  Then there comes the joy and excitement of reading or having the story read to you.  Which is your favorite way to enjoy a picture book?  

The world of reading and your imagination can take you on adventures to meet new friends and places all over the world and beyond.  So pick up a book and have fun!

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book 5 out of 5.

  6. I also did the blog tour for Tiger in my Soup. I really enjoy working with Peachtree. You have a nice blog. I am here from the blog hop and want to thank you for joining in the hop.

    Isn't Tiger in my Soup just delicious? Here is a young boy who wants to have a story read to him but big sis won't not because she is with her boyfriend or listening to the radio. She is too engrossed in her own book. What a great message. Big kids read, little kids read. Everyone but the tiger wants to read.

  7. The info about this book is motivating me to read it. I will try to get this book soon and hope that it will be a great experience to read it.
