Despite damaging the shark population, these efforts were shown to be ineffective in decreasing the number of interactions between humans and tiger sharks. Feeding sharks in Hawaii except for traditional Hawaiian cultural or religious practices is illegal,   and interaction with them, such as cage diving, is discouraged. South African shark behaviorist and shark diver Mark Addison demonstrated divers could interact and dive with them outside of a shark cage in a Discovery Channel special,  and underwater photographer Fiona Ayerst swam with them in the Bahamas.
This aligns with the generally known facts about sharks and their highly developed senses. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Tiger shark disambiguation.

Ok, back to the story. So as you read through the book you find that the preschool-to-early-elementary set will not be able to stop laughing every time that beast shows up.

Prompt your group to shout out the hiding spot - i. No matter how fast you run away, it somehow beats you to your next location, be it a cave, island or ship.

Right away he notices something out of place Everywhere he goes he encounters a tiger! In a cave, on a ship and in a treasure chest. Will the tiger eat the boy in the end? This book is one big silly-go-round. My nephew totally loved it and laughed at all the little hints of the tiger. He looked forward to the next crazy place the boy would find the tiger. The art was big and Check out more picture book reviews Perspective of a Writer The art was big and think in the most enchanting way. Somehow it feels like a book for a boy while at the same time having an appeal for all ages and sexes.
While the message is not a strong one the story does merit talking about how appearances can be deceiving My nephew chose the spread with the tiger jumping out of the chest to draw though he was also quite enchanted by the tiger dressed as the captain of the ship.

Every page is a new location and an opportunity for safety except for tail or stripe to give a hint that the tiger has beat the main character a boy and the audience to the location. The illustrations are amazing. They are bright, colorful, and the lines are thick and defined. There is a mixture in the illustrations between objects that are defined with a black outline and objects that are almost just a blur of color; this helps the young audience to identify what is the more important part of the illustration.
The dramatic reaction of the boy helps the audience to understand what their reaction should be. The boy always jumps off the ground in a very expressive way to show how frightened he is of that tiger. The audience is preschool aged students and as a read-aloud this book will entertain them immensely. This book has so many opportunities for excitement and enjoyment of the audience through the adventurous story line and the beautiful and bright illustrations.

Tiger Facts and Information
Jun 09, Barbara rated it really liked it Shelves: I always enjoy books in which the narrator directly addresses the reader, and this picture book does that all the way through. Young readers will enjoy this one because it includes them even on the first page. The narrator tries to begin a story, but before getting very far, becomes distracted by the sighting of a tiger. In some of the pages, just the tip of the tiger's tail is visible, and in others, the tiger is hiding in the dark.
After going from place to place to avoid the tiger, the narrat I always enjoy books in which the narrator directly addresses the reader, and this picture book does that all the way through. After going from place to place to avoid the tiger, the narrator realizes that the tiger "was only yawning" unpaged and would probably enjoy a story.
Having transcended his fear about tigers, the narrator moves on to another fearsome beast. The story is fun and will stand up to repeated readings, and the ink and digital media illustrations add so much to the fun since readers can try to spot the tiger in every illustration. This title is creative and imaginative!

Oct 01, babyhippoface rated it really liked it Shelves: The interactive style of narrative promises to make this book a ton of fun for reading aloud or sharing. I love Jeremy Tankard's style of big, blocky illustrations. I think this is perfect for parents and caregivers to share one-on-one. The repeated "jump" scenes ensure that it will leave kids in giggles.
Many picture books can be read aloud; however, some make for a more engaging read aloud. I can already hear the kids itching to shout out "a tiger" at the various points in the story where the tiger makes an appearance.

May 06, Ezekiel rated it liked it Shelves: Finally the "this is just me": I tend to not want to read books to kids that don't have SOME message, and this mostly just felt like a "silly to be silly" book. It's definitely the type of book that younger kids will like because of how they can interact with the story. If you like silly stories that are solely about their silliness, this might very well be a 4 or 5 star book for you.

I LOVE books like this. It really holds the attention of preschoolers because: There are motions that allow them to interact frequently. They can easily make predictions, and have fun calling out what they think it coming. There are a lot of exciting moments in it that allow for some acting, and the kids love watching the storyteller be extra expressive and silly. For this book, we made a torn paper tiger, which is a great activity for exercising fine motor skills, doesn't I LOVE books like this.
