I Don’t Want to go to Bed!

Written by Julie Sykes
Illustrated by Tim Warnes

Little Tiger didn’t want to go to bed. Eventually his Mummy was fed up with him, so decided to let him stay up all night. Little Tiger was delighted and went off into the jungle to play with his friends. But they were all asleep, and he was all alone.

Turn over the page to your first feely picture. There are two pictures here. The big one at the top is Little Tiger and the smaller one underneath is Bush baby. When you are ready, feel all over Little Tiger. Tigers have soft orange coats with black stripes and white markings. Run your fingers over Little Tiger's coat and feel the raised lines showing his stripes. Now find Little Tiger's head, remember he is facing right. Start at the top of his head and find the curved shape of his ear. It is edged in black and the inside is white. Little Tiger has two ears but we can only feel one because he is sideways on. Trace right over the spiky tufts of fur sticking up on the top of his head
