The Last Tiger: A Story of Hope

We rated this book:


Aasha loves her home, a thriving forest teeming with life. The sounds of creatures everywhere provide a comforting backdrop, while busy mornings playing hide-and-seek bring cherishable times. Before long, though, Aasha notices things are changing. Moderation gives way to extremes. Unbearable heat and endless flooding causes her precious habitat to turn into a wasteland. She worries there will be no more food. When she hears the awful “tap, tap, tap” and “cLuNk-crash-snap” of humans chopping down her trees, she flees. After a long journey across many miles, she’s reunited with her friends in a place where hope is alive.

This is a timely book centered on topics important to young children: wildlife, conservation, and survival. They’ll favor the creative way in which the author tells her story as if she can feel Aasha’s sadness herself when she’s forced to leave her homeland in search of another, a place where new beginnings lead to possibilities.

Youth ages five to nine will be intrigued by the illustrations. They’re unique with their squared edges and prominent lines. They’ll find them captivating and expressive. Additionally, at the end of the text are a variety of interesting facts about animal endangerment, extinction, and more for them to revel in.
