The Tiger Who Came to Tea

Written by Judith Kerr

Suitable for: 5-7 years (Key stage 1)

This classic story was first published in the 1960s. It is a reassuring, funny story with a hint of anarchy that has delighted children ever since it first appeared.

Listen to an audio clip

On the cover of your book is written the name of the story and its writer Judith Kerr; there is a picture of a large, stripy, smiling tiger sitting at a table beside a little girl who, I think is about six.
Open the book and find our first Feely Picture. Feel all over it. It shows the little girl sitting on the back of the tiger as he walks along. He is going from left to right, so start at the binding and move into the picture. The first thing you feel is his tail which is curling up. Move down his tail until you reach his back. You'll feel a little girl sitting on his back, one leg either side.
