Lee is a tiny tiger who lives with his Mum in the safety of his treetop house. There he feels safe from the dangers of the dark jungle below. But one wild stormy night, Lee and his Mum are thrown to the ground and Lee is forced to face his fears in order to help her. A Tiger named Lee tells the story of a timid little tiger who refuses to leave his tree-top perch and go down to the jungle floor for fear of what may lie there. However, he and his Mum are thrown from the tree on a stormy night and the little tiger has to overcome his fears.
I read this book with my very soon to be four year old daughter and we both loved it!
I loved how it was written and the books natural flow, it was easy for Ava to follow and understand and she asked if we could read it again straight after and that is always the sign of a hit as she has a lot of books!
It is 5 stars from me for this one, loved the story, loved the characters and Ava loved Lee!
It is a great book for her at the moment as she is starting Reception too in September this year so will have her first encounter of what it is like at school (sadly her induction has been cancelled due to Covid) – we will be reading it again a few more times before that!
