First sentence: Mama Tiger/ Bright Sky/ Mama Tiger/ Zigzag River/ Mama Tiger/ Slippery Fish/

Premise/plot: Does this one have a plot? If it does--and I'm not saying it doesn't--it's up to readers to piece the dots together. Or to phrase it a different way, it is up to readers to supply THE VERBS. The book follows MAMA TIGER. Tiger Cub makes an appearance by the end of the book.

My thoughts: I like simple. I can do simple. Word books for little ones do not require verbs or a story. Alphabet books

I enjoyed the art which is a combination of collage and what appears to be stamped paint. Very simple, which is of course fine for a board book. You could also do plenty with it, because the pictures feature lots of bright colors etc.
