About the book...

Who hasn't lost their temper at least once in their lifetime?  This little Tiger-trantrum cutie is losing it all the time.  If he has to have a bath... he grumbles.  If he has to clean up his toys he yells, "NO!" "I'M NOT DOING IT!"  He stomps, he cries, he throws a fit until one day Mama Tiger has had enough...

"Don't make me ask you again," she said."
"Mama made an angry face and said,'You had better hold your temper, Tiger... or else!'  (Of course punctuating that remark with a wooden spoon also helps her cause.)

That stops Little Tiger right in his tracks.  What in the world did "or else" mean?  He wasn't sure he even wants to find out but he explores his options...

Could it mean no playtime? no books? NO DESSERTS? Oh my!!! Right then and there he has an epiphany. Perhaps he SHOULD hold his temper but where should he hold it?

He tries very hard to find a some place to secure.  I know kids will giggle at this part of the story, especially when he thinks maybe his underwear might be the perfect spot.  Finally with a loud R-O-A-R-R-R-R-R-R he chooses one.  Hats off to Little Tiger but I think he should he keep his hat tightly on!

This is a wonderful book to explain and talk about anger management and how to control this very strong and real emotion.  I highly recommend it.
