Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown


This week I am reading Mr. Tiger Goes Wild to my first and second graders.  Mr. Tiger is tired of being proper and decides to go a little wild.  The humor is based on the fact that he is actually a wild animal, doing the things he does is quite normal.  Since he is portrayed like a human, however, his friends think he is quite scandalous.  On the back, there is a quote ” There is a time and a place for everything, even to be wild.”  We talked about when and where the appropriate time and place to act wild is at school.  In the classroom?  In the library?  At recess.
