n this delightful role-reversal story, all the serious little boy wants is to settle down quietly and read his book. But that?s not so easy when there?s an imaginative tiger with an excess of energy behind the couch, wanting attention and someone to play with. Repetitive refrains and sound effects make this a perfect read-aloud, and the sweet and cozy ending will delight the heart of any book-lover.

This book is great when teaching children about interruptions when others are doing something. ( )

This cute story is about a little boy trying to read but his pet tiger keeps getting in the way. The little boy learns a lesson of including the tiger in his activities. It teaches children how to solve a simply issue, such as your pet tiger annoying you. ( )

The young narrator of the story gets more and more frustrated as he tries to read his book, only to be constantly interrupted by the tiger behind the couch... first the tiger' is chewing gum, then pretending to be a bear, then practicing his karate moves, then making choo choo train noises. What's a young reader to do? Delightful and expressive illustrations perfectly complement the quirky text, and primary students will love the tiger's remorseful tone as he promises over and over that he CAN be quiet. ( )
