I won this book in a goodreads drawing.

A daring girl goes into the jungle and meets and greets the animals, including a talking tiger.

The illustrations are great.

Ada and myself really loved this tale. It is a brilliant story about an adventurous girl, just like Ada, who doesn’t quite fit in. She finds herself exploring the jungle, when she meets a tiger. It just so happens this tiger is a little different as well, and the two completely bond over their uniqueness. We love that it showed there is nothing wrong with being different and that you will find someone who loves you just as you are. Such an important message in days like today.

This is an inspiring book because it relays a good message about being yourself. The pictures in this book are very well done. This story flows very well, and the scenes fit together well.

Thank you for sending me this book. My children love it

When reading children's stories, I typically base my reviews on two things; the first is the story and the second are the illustrations. For Kelsey Lee's The Tiger Like Me, I went into reading this book sort of anticipating that both would be done well based on my cursory look the synopsis and cover. As I continued reading it, however, I began to feel a little unhappy with a couple things. And while I want to preface this by saying that I do, generally, really l

---4.5 Stars---

This book is such a beautifully told story that is full of inspiration, courage, curiosity, diversity, love, friendship, and encouragement!!!

I love positive children’s books and this book totally fits that bill!!! Children need love, encouragement, confidence, motivation, and self esteem while they are at such a vulnerable and developing stage. It’s important that children see these attributes from all dimensions not just their friends, family, and teachers; but also from the book

The story is written in a rhyming fashion, the kind of which reminds you of Dr. Seuss. But those books were a little silly. This book tried really well to send a positive message. That it's ok to be different, and it's fine to be yourself, people may think of you as different and may have a problem with the way you think.

The story of the book revolves around a village girl named Abhi. Abhi has seven sisters, who are well behaved and girlish. But Abhi is high spirited and fun loving. She is loud

We received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher via Goodreads. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Abhi is the youngest of eight. Her sisters stand proper and tall and play quietly and kindly, but Abhi does her own thing. She is restless and wild and not afraid to get dirty or have fun. And then one day she is dared to wander into the dark, dangerous forest, so she heads out on an adventure...
...and comes face to face with a tiger!

This wonderful rhyming story is about a brave

Abhi is an adventurous girl. She is also a princess in her village. One day she finds a tiger in the forest, and at first she is frightened that he is going to hurt her or eat her. But she goes beyond her fear and asks his name. She figures out that he is a nice, talking tiger named Tanzeer. Tanzeer and Abhi form a bond and become friends. Tanzeer and Abhi have many memorable adventures together as they explore the forest and meet new animals. They also realize that they are different, but as be ...more

The Tiger Like Me inspires and entertains!

Great, exotic pictures bring this rhyming adventure to life. These gorgeous illustrations are enough to attract the attention of children and adults alike.

Set in a village, perhaps in India, we are introduced to Abhi who is unlike her seven sisters. She is the fun one, while the others are too serious. Right away one might wonder if it would be Abhi or her sisters who are going to learn an important lesson.

We learn that Abhi is actually a princess, an

The illustrations as you can see, are vivid, colorful, cover the full page and are energetic. It will draw the eye easily, not only to the characters in the foreground but also the background details of the village, the jungle, the animals. A lot of work and care has clearly gone to the illustrations which are going to be a visual feast for young kids and their guardians alike.

However, I did find the rhymes very uneven and clunky throughout which kind of took away from my enjoyment of the story

The Tiger Like Me is one little girl’s song; an ode to courage. This youngest of seven sisters, just isn’t like them. She doesn’t want to be proper and average. She is wild and free and enjoys her life of adventure. She sees things in her own special way and loves to get out and explore her world.

Although she lives close to the jungle and can visit with jungle wildlife, we can all live like we are tigers. Following our own path, feeling the Tiger within us can enable us to be different and be a

Abhi’s her name and adventure’s her game. But her mom says she needs to slow down and act like a princess with a crown. One day, they dare her to go into the jungle and, of course, she gladly agrees. There, she encounters all kinds of creatures, including a tiger that can talk. Soon, it becomes of day of playing in the jungle and learning that she shares similarities with all the furry creatures.

Vibrant and colorful illustrations with fun rhymes! It shows that girls don’t have to be girly; they
Anneliese Grassi
Very cute book with a fantastic message. Abhi loves adventure and nothing is gonna stand in her way of finding it, making her different than all of her friends. So when she is dared to go into the jungle, she doesn’t even bat an eyelash, she barrels on in having the time of her life. She takes in every bit of her surroundings and comes face to face with a tiger, who is also “different.” The moral of the story is we are all human and just be yourself. The story didn’t always flow but the characte ...more

The Tiger Like Me is a lovely children's book about diversity and embracing differences. It also shows kids that facing their fears and being brave can be a good thing. With beautiful illustrations that bring the story to life, young readers will enjoy immersing themselves in Abhi's journey through the jungle. Along the way, she meets many animals, including a tiger who is different just like her. She may be a princess, but she prefers to march to the beat of her own drum. And that's okay (even ...more

I really enjoyed this book. The message was good. Loved the illustrations. The part I loved the very most 'We are all different, yet we are the same'. This drives home the importance of acceptance and diversity, and it's done in a very positive way.

I received a copy of this story through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.
Children’s rhyming book

We won this book through a giveaway and I read this book to my kindergartener. While we both enjoyed the illustrations and the rhymes, the story had a peculiar flow to it. The message of being yourself is a great one to include; it just seemed as though the book was trying to include too much.
Christine Woinich
This was not my usual read, but I thought I would read it for the intended message. The rhyme scheme threw me a couple of times, but I did enjoy the enthusiasm for being different. We should all feel this way. It was worth the read, and children will enjoy the illustrations as well.

Quite long, but great pictures!
Great book. This was a wonderful children's book with great illustrations. While my grandchildren are still too young for this, I will defintely read it to them someday.

A young girl Abhi has seven sisters who sit around all day in their pretty little gowns playing games. Abhi’s mother wants Abhi to wear pretty gowns and be like her sisters but she cannot as that is not who she is. Abhi is more adventurous than her sisters.

She likes to play pranks on her mother and sisters. She likes to sing and dance in the rain and play in the mud holes. Abhi doesn’t want to be like everyone else she just wants to be herself.

Abhi is the kind of person who likes to face her fea
