A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this book.
Parents can help young children identify the different animals and perhaps talk about where each one would live in the wild.
Positive MessagesMr. Tiger's story celebrates the value of being yourself -- both for your own sake and for that of everyone around you. His bold actions help change life in his community for the better. Also, although everyone should enjoy their wild side, it's important to be respectful and considerate of other people.
Positive Role ModelsMr. Tiger helps his friends rediscover what it means to have fun. He has the courage to act according to his heart. But Mr. Tiger doesn't veer toward selfishness: He respects his friends enough to take his wild behavior to a more suitable environment and comes to realize it's also important to be part of a community. His friends welcome him warmly and are inspired by his example.
Parents Need to KnowParents need to know that when Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, his friends and neighbors are taken aback by his wild ways. As they come to accept his wildness -- and their own -- they welcome him back with open arms.
Is It Any Good?
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
