    "The Tiger Rising"

    Wonderful emotional layers. My 9 Yo granddaughter appreciated the emotional connections. Her favorite piece of the story was the realization of dad and son having each other. They both missed mom but they had each other. They were not alone in their feelings of loss.

    "amazing"

    I loved this book. As a book for young readers, I was delightfully surprised as I enjoyed it very much for myself as It has very mature issues. I was thinking about it for my 10 year old nephew, but it is not for him.

    Story
    "Captivating"
    Where does The Tiger Rising rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the first audioboook I have used with my students. My 4th graders found it very interesting and were to relate to the characters in the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I liked best about the story is that it was easy to put yourself in the character's shoes and imagine how that must feel.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was where Rob was working the wood and was surprised at what he had carved.
