Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

As if the bedtime ritual weren’t hard enough on children (and their caregivers), there’s also the problem of getting kids to stay in their own beds if they wake in the middle of the night. Although bedtime stories abound, relatively few picture books tackle the latter. Mommy Tiger has the same dilemma each night as her cub, Piper, awakes and would rather curl up next to her than feel small and alone in his big bed. As the adorable, wide-eyed mother and son wander, play, and drink from their favorite pond, Mommy Tiger reminds Piper through gentle text with hints of rhyme just how high he can climb and jump on his own and offers suggestions (such as counting to 10) he can try to stay in his own bed. Most importantly, Mommy gets Piper to realize that mothers are never that far away. As tigers seem to know just how to make human children rest, sleepless households should pair this with Mary Logue’s Caldecott Honor winner, Sleep like a Tiger (2012). Preschool-Grade 1. --Angela Leeper

Review

A beautifully illustrated (the spread-eagled, sleeping Piper will melt your heart) and touchingly sweet story about growing up and taking the first steps towards independence. Daily Mail Children finding it difficult to spend a night alone will take comfort in Piper's plight and should grow in confidence. A great book, colourfully illustrated by Layn Marlow. We Love This Book "The warm and comforting tones of Layn Marlow's beautiful pictures reinforce the message of Amber Stewart's gentle story. An ideal book to read with toddlers." The Scotsman "...This is a beautifully illustrated...and sweet story about growing up. With luck, it might bring everyone an undisturbed night's sleep too." Irish Daily Mail --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
"Too Small for my Big Bed" by Amber Stewart is a sweet children's book beautifully illustrated by Layn Marlow. A tiger cub named Piper is reluctant to sleep alone at night and prefers to climb into bed with his mom. She utilizes several techniques to encourage Piper to become more independent and secure as he explores the world around him.

This is a lovely oversized children's book that combines vividly illustrated pictures with lessons on encouraging independence in one's child. The gradual boost to Piper's confidence combined with the firm yet gentle insistence that he occupy his own bed at night provides a nice lesson for parents and children alike. A delightful read that will provide food for the mind and the imagination.

My 2.5-year-old son loves this "tiger" book and it has really helped us transition him into his big boy bed. Sweet story with wonderful illustrations.

Format: Hardcover
I recall my youngest daughter even after reading stories, saying prayers, and lots of kisses and hugs still wanting me to lay beside her and hold her hand while she fell asleep. So what a perfect story this would have been to share with her. Maybe you have a little one like her at bedtime.

The mother tiger and her cub display all the emotions a toddler and mother have as bedtime becomes a reality each night. Mother tiger helps her cub to gain confidence as any mother would do with her child. It is a beautiful story for a mother and child to share~~ helping the toddler to move toward their bedtime independence.
