Very prettily written, text written almost like a poem broken up with verses on each page. along with beautiful illustrations makes this story a pleasant one to read. A tigress is taking care of her baby during the winter; but when wildfire breaks out she looses him and isn't sure where he went to.

Little Lost Tiger is a beautifully illustrated description of a night and the following morning in the life of Siberian tiger Striped One and her young son, Amba. Author Jonathan London nicely describes the frozen habitat, the creatures (tigers and others) who live there, and the excitement of a sudden forest fire. "A Note from the Author" at the end tells us a little about Siberian tigers; it informs us Udege and Nanai tribes both call tigers "Amba," so that's where the baby tiger in Little Los ...more
Age: Preschool - Kindergarten
Animal: Siberian Tiger

"A mother Siberian Tiger and her cub step silently into the forest, floating like mist in the moonlight. The mother nudges her cub beneath a fallen tree as she goes in search of food. Suddenly there's a roar louder than any tiger's. Fire!"

The greatest achievement of this book is its ability to stand out amidst other picture books for preschool through kindergarten. Where others rhyme to capture the audience, London uses beautiful vocabulary to d

The story follows a mother Siberian tiger and her kitten though a forest as the mom hunts for food. A forest fire crops up and the pair gets separated. After the fire ends, mother looks for her kitten again. The illustrations are softly and detailed with plenty of browns and blues. Lines detail the fur and whiskers as a contrast to the forest background. Written as a tribute to Siberian tigers which are nearing extinction.

The illustrations alone are fantastic and so real. And the story of course brought tears to my eyes.

Every child needs to read this book and learn the message inside to help save the Siberian Tiger which is near extinction thanks to greedy humans.

Please buy this book, check it out and spread the word to help save this beautiful and majestic animal.

Written by Jonathan London, illustrated by Ilya Spirin and published by Marshall Cavendish Children.

Beautifully illustrated story of a Siberian Tiger and her young cub trying to survive in the harsh snowing winter weather. I really like the informative information about Siberian Tigers in the afterward.
One night a mama tiger sets out to hunt for her and her cub, but then encounters a forest fire and loses her cub's whereabouts. A beautifully illustrated book; short informational text at the conclusion of the story.

Little Lost Tiger by Jonathan London, illustrated by Ilya Spirin - 2012- Loved this picture book, quite suspenseful when a little tiger is left in a safe place only to have to run away when there’s a forest fire.

Gorgeously illustrated, simple picture book about a Siberian tiger separated from his mom during a wildfire. Reads aloud well, good for groups, but might be too scary for some kids.

The illustrations are sumptuously stunning, but the text seems to really fall behind. this would have worked beautifully as a wordless book.

Good information and some nice action. Might be a good book to share with a class before talking about endangered species.
