For the youngest readers just starting school or day care, a playful story that teaches how a little kindness toward others can make a big difference. Little Tiger is excited to go to school, but he doesn't always know how to behave. Little Tiger can be quite bossy. If he wants something, he just takes it. His unruly nature intimidates everyone around him. But when his teacher gives him a gentle tip, he realizes that small changes can make a big difference and Little Tiger discovers that treating others well can be fun! Carol Roth tells a sensitive story about a bully who learns to be considerate and yet remains true to himself. The Iranian-American artist Rashin illustrates the scenes with bold strokes and a pastel color palette. Praise for Hold Your Temper, Tiger "Readers will easily recognize parts of themselves in this cranky, golden-furred hero."--Publishers Weekly
