Don’t Wake Up The Tiger (Britta Teckentrup)

Hello, friends! Our book today is Don’t Wake Up The Tiger by Britta Teckentrup, a delightful interactive story of a sleepy tiger and some sneaky animals.

Frog, Fox, Tortoise, Mouse, and Stork have somewhere to be with their giant bunch of balloons, but there is a big, stripey problem: Tiger has fallen asleep right in their path! They have to get around her without waking her up, but how? Frog comes up with a clever plan: they can use the balloons to, one by one, float up over the sleeping Tiger. But there are a few mishaps, and each time there is, they need the reader’s help to get them across while keeping the big cat dozing as well. But Tiger has to wake up eventually and when she does, there’s a big surprise in store…

So much fun! When interactive storybooks are done well, they are such a wonderful experience to share with baby bookworms, and we had a blast with this one. The adorable illustrations are colorful and cleverly oversized, giving a sense of scale and depth that help the animals and interactions to feel real. The interactive elements are fantastic, simple enough for the very young to understand yet fun and silly enough that it will keep them entertained. And the charming twist at the end gave us a big smile. The length was perfect for a quick read, and JJ went absolutely wild for it. This is an engaging, entertaining interactive story for big and little readers to share, and we definitely recommend it. Baby Bookworm approved!
