Great book with excellent illustrations and fun textures for babies to feel.

Both of my children absolutely loved touch-and-feel books, but this book is different than any of the other ones that we've ever read.

I love to read, and my son Teddy is six months old and "eating" the books up.

I just discovered a really cute picture book for the little one in your life. It's called HAVE YOU EVER TICKLED A TIGER? by Betsy Snyder; and it's positively adorable! Not only is the story and pictures cute, but it's also a touch-and-feel book!

HAVE YOU EVER TICKLED A TIGER? is geared towards children under two years old, but that didn't stop by little guy from wanting to read it. I told him that this book is really for someone younger, like his little cousin, but he says he really likes it and doesn't want to give it away.

This book is being sold as "not your average touch-and-feel book;" and I have to agree. Both of my children absolutely loved touch-and-feel books, but this book is different than any of the other ones that we've ever read. Each page in the book shows a different animals that you can feel; however, these animals aren't typical. There is a penguin, a hedgehog, an ostrich, a walrus, an armadillo, and an octopus -- see what I mean about this book having more obscure animals?

The pictures in this book are downright precious. All of the animals are very cute and have big eyes which make them even more adorable. The words in this book are very catchy and rhyme, and some of the words even sound funny when you read them. For example, my son thought this was extremely entertaining, "have you ever kissed a walrus? whiskers tickle! pucker up for fishy kisses from this pup." What he loved even more was actually kissing the walrus and feeling the "real" walrus whiskers!

The textures in this book are wonderful for little hands and fingers to touch. There is a furry penguin, a velcro-ish hedgehog, and a feathery ostrich to name a few. My son has played with this book a lot and loves touching all the different animals.

I definitely think this book is a winner and little ones are going to love it if my son is any indication!

I bought this book on the recommendations of a couple of online friends. Honestly, both my husband and I agree that this book is sort of lame and was a waste of money. Don't get me wrong - the concept is great. I love that the animals aren't your typical touch-and-feel creatures.

However, the execution of the tactile aspects is poorly done. Half of the touch elements are barely noticeable enough to be interesting to my son (the octopus's suction cups are hole reinforcers, which are barely raised off the page....the armadillo is barely textured....the walrus's whiskers are a great idea but there are only a few so it's not very exciting). The bird's feathers are cute and interesting, but too fragile for a young child. We protected the feathers for a while but finally gave up and my son ripped them out the second we stopped.

The penguin's tummy is good (soft and fuzzy, what you feel through the cover of the book) and the velcro for the hedgehog is a cool idea. However, we didn't feel that having two or three good pages out of the entire book warranted the price, especially when we had other more traditional touch-and-feel books that provided a better experience.

I love to read, and my son Teddy is six months old and "eating" the books up. But my latest discovery are the books of Betsy Snyder, first Haiku baby which I found myself getting dreamy over, and now the winsome and fun "Have you ever tickled a tiger" -- my son's eyes like to rest and explore on the fantastic illustrations, and everyone I show it to is just crazy about it.

We just love it.

Brava!
I await more!

I really like all the textures and colors in this book. There's just one item that should be changed. There's a purple bird with "feathers" and the first thing my 10 month old daughter did was pull the "feathers". =( Perhaps, they shouldn't have included a bird in the book!

This book includes six touchy-feely textures, fabulous digital collage illustrations, and a text that encourages a young reader to interact. My kids interacted with the book and interacted with me. Great book for little ones!

My 18mo old was an instant fan. He likes feeling all of the different textures especially the feathers and porcupine needles. More so, I like the fact that he is getting exposed to names like ostrich, walrus, porcupine - things not in the normal animal book.

This has been a favorite of my 1-year old's for a few months now. He especially loves the ostrich feathers. He can now damage the book by pulling the feathers out...so it's now providing an opportunity to teach him how to be gentle with things he likes to touch. I love the prose and find it a delight to read to him!

I purchased this book for my 17 month old who loves interactive and sensory books. He absolutely loves it.
The first thing he does after he tickles the tiger is to cover his belly because he knows I'm going to tickle him! so cute.
There are different animals and your kid can interact differently with each one: poke a penguin, nudge a hedgehog, fluff the feahers of an ostrich, kiss a walrus -my son only plays with its whiskers though-, touch an armadillo, or hug an octopus -ok my son hugs me instead- ;)
The rhymes are simple and sweet and I really like the ilustration style.
I'm definitely a Betsy Snyder fan now and I also bought Sweet Dreams Lullaby and my son loves it too (even though his attention spam is still too short for that one, we talk about the pictures and all the cute critters in the illustrations, sometimes I get to read a few pages too).
But anyway, back to this book: definitely "Have you ever tickled a tiger" has become a regular at bedtime for my son. I highly recommend it!
