Have You Ever Tickled A Tiger

Have You Ever Tickled A Tiger? Betsy E. Snyder. 2009. Random House. 14 pages.

Have you ever poked a penguin?
Daddy's tum is soft and stout--
A cozy spot for hiding out!

Have you ever nudged a hedgehog?
She's cute and sharp and kind of prickly.
Touch her--is your finger tickly?
I enjoyed this touch-and-feel board book by Betsy Snyder. It includes several animals with touch-and-feel elements: a walrus, an octopus, a tiger, a hedgehog, an armadillo, a penguin, an ostrich. I especially enjoyed the ostrich, the hedgehog, and the walrus. Those textures aren't as common in touch-and-feel books--like the soft fur of so many others.
