A Tiger Tale

recommendation We love this book for the sympathetic and touching way in which it introduces young readers to loss and coping with the death of a loved one. It’s ideal for confident young readers to read themselves but is just as suitable for reading aloud. Not only does the tiger on the cover have the ‘awww’ factor but there are some lovely black and white drawings inside. Kate is about 8 years old and her granddad has recently passed away. She is comforted by a cuddly tiger toy her granddad gave her when she was small… but is there more to her tiger toy than meets the eye…? Holly has written lots of books for children and writes beautifully and sympathetically about this sensitive topic. If you need to approach this subject with younger ones then read it with them instead. Highly recommended.
