    Best Book

    I started reading this book to my daughter when she was only a baby, now she is 18 months old and she loves this book - it HAS to be read EVERY night before bed (with another 2/3 books) "Tiger, Tiger, Tiger" she says, I've read it so many times I don't even have to look at the words any more. I am sure it is one of the books that made my daughter love books so much. It really is a must for every child. Don't be put off thinking that this is a book for younger children, I'm sure it is recommended for older children as it is a story book with lots of words and pages.
