Our two year old loves this book! Great message and the illustrations are gorgeous. Disregard the other review, there is definitely not any adult content in this book!

MR. TIGER GOES WILD is a fun, beautiful romp with a message that hits home with young children, who are learning when they can be wild and when they need to be reasonably well behaved. Author and illustrator Peter Brown evokes classic midcentury-modern illustrations. He sets the vibrantly orange Mr. Tiger against rigid, sepia-tone backdrops in the city and a riot of color and action in the wilderness. It's a delight to see his face soften from seriously put-out to giddily happy.
Children will giggle at the stiff, buttoned-down grownups, who sternly reprimand the children for acting "like wild animals." Be prepared for some roaring and romping after reading this one! Brown's website features a downloadable activity kit with crafts and games.

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.
