Illustrated Friday: Tiger Pups
I totally love this kind of book- real photos of real animals, doing real things. This one is unique in that it's designed as a read aloud- the text is simple and directly connected to the photos that illustrate the book. The book's subject, incidentally, is a fun one as well- three white tiger cubs being raised by a dog in the Safari Zoological Park in Caney, Kansas. The authors, Tom and Allie Harvey, are the owners of the zoo and have made careers out of saving and raising endangered animals. With a cute story, awesome photos, kids will love this one! Happy Friday!
