Clovis, a tiny tiger who believes his roar to be the loudest in the jungle, keeps scaring other, unsuspecting animals until they team up to teach him a lesson.

Not much to say about this particular picture book. Let’s be honest, the main appeal are the opportunities both to roar and use the word “roaringest” frequently. I used this for my preschool (ages 0-5, not preschool preschool) storytime, and it worked pretty well. The kids seemed fairly engaged, and one toddler kept belatedly roaring adora
Perhaps I'm being cynical, but at best The Loudest Roar's message is "be quiet and stop annoying people". At worst, it's saying "don't express yourself, even if what you want to say is as intrinsic a part of you as a tiger and his roar...". I realise young children won't see any such profound message in the story, but I still see nothing positive about the tale. The illustration itself is middle of the range. Any positives? The "word" roaring-est.

A clever little story about Clovis, a young tiger who is the loudest, ‘most roaringest tiger in the whole world’. Amidst the calm of the jungle, when the other animals are relaxing, Clovis would creep up and roar as loud as he could, frightening them all: from the parrots to the elephants.

Then one day the monkey had an idea, and through communication and collaboration with the other animals, they decide to get their own back on the tiger. They crept up on him whilst he was drinking at the water

The illustrations were bright and colorful which in my opinion makes children's books better. This was a cute book about a tiger names Clovis who wanted to show everyone how fierce he was. Clovis scared a bunch of the animals so they got together to show Clovis how it felt to be roared at. At the end of the book Clovis is well behaved. In my opinion this would be a good anti-bullying book.
Clovis, a small tiger with a loud roar, disturbs the peace and calm of the jungle until the day that the other animals put their heads and voices together.

This is a good example of a predictable text for early readers. I would say this is best for K-1st grades.

Pretty adorable pictures, and the story was pretty cute and funny, too.

A clever and cheerful book. I read it as a end-of-the-day story to my Year 1 class and they loved it, all of the class got involved and I was able to get my pupils to predict what was going to happen next.
Clovis may be a small baby lion but he reckons and he has the loudest roar in the world and is more than happy to make his fellow jungle friends jump as he shows off his loud roar! But the tables are turned on him at the end.
A pleasant read to a class full of young children.

Sam liked the sound effects on this one. Too bad he's not old enough to understand the moral of the story! Would be good for a toddler learning to use his/her inside voice, or learning that just because you *can* do something, that doesn't mean you should.

(This review is based on the book only, not the book & CD.)

My sons both loved this simple book about a cute, but annoying, little tiger. The five-year-old even had me read it to his Kindergarten class! It's a sweet little book, although the monkey illustrations creep me out.

A fun and simple storytime read about a little tiger with a very big roar, who thought that was reason enough to make him better than everyone. Has a cute little bit of a twist at the end.
From Ms. Kim

Cute book for emerging readers. This book could be very interactive and prove to be a good "brain break" where everyone can practice their lion sounds.
cute story about a little lion who learns his lesson not to roar and scare other animals in the jungle. or does he?
