4 Owlets: We Enjoyed It!

This lively adventure features an animal "Odd Couple": a terrifying young tiger and a fearsome little crocodile engage in a playful war of words. They may be small, but they surely believe they are scary! 

In lush spreads painted in traditional watercolor, this budding rivalry escalates. The two youngsters compare their tremendous stealth, strength, stamina, and even speed. The argument is subtly educating, but overtly hilarious; especially when readers learn what animal is truly the scariest thing in the jungle

What animal is the scariest thing in the jungle? Both the young tiger and crocodile think they are and they're out to prove to the other just how scary they are. Both of them soon learn that they may not be as scary as they think. There just might be something scarier out there..... or is there?  

With it's adorable illustrations, this easy to read e-book is one young kids, and kids who love animals will enjoy. I liked that while it's a story, kids also get to learn a little bit about the jungle and the differences between the tiger and alligator. My daughter enjoyed it, and even liked being able to read some of the words. Though we both enjoyed this story, what really won us over was the illustrations. They're fabulous, and are perfect for young children who enjoy looking through picture books. 

This book is the whole package- it's a great picture book, and fun story to read. This is one book worth adding to your e-book collection. 
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
