This story provides the perfect platform to discuss geography and how climate, inhabitants and life differs from one country to another. Being a Vietnamese folktale this story presents to students landscapes, clothing and animals they would not find in their own countries outside a zoo or museum. The teacher can base a lesson around these comparisons creating contrasts and discussing the practicality of each difference. ( )

I like how a lot of these multicultural folktales say it all with the title. This was an amusing story, but I think the illustrations were better than the story. It is short, which would be good to read to younger students.
Curriculum Connections: Once again this would be a great example to use an any unit for any age that's on folktales. ( )

This Vietnamese folktale about a tiger earning his stripes is an entertaining way to give children some diverse culture on the bookshelf. The moral of this story is to not be too prideful or selfish, which is important for elementary aged kids to grasp. A way to involve students could be to "give" them a stripe every time you caught them doing something nice that week. Teachers could also have kids talk about why they think this is an important lesson. I loved this story!! ( )

Many years ago, the proudest animal in the jungle was not the peacock. The proudest animal was the tiger. In this folktale from Vietnam, we see how Tiger's pride leads him to covet wisdom, and with the help of a wise farmer, earn his stripes. This book would be good for a lesson about pride, and how not to be too proud that it makes the people around you angry at you.
