Story Time With Amber And Erin is excited to share our read aloud chapter book “The Rising Tiger” by Kate DiCamillo. It’s one of our popular chapter books. We had an educator who requested that we record this book as it is the first book her students are reading for the new school year. Click here to link with the PLAYLIST. We are two sisters on a mission to making a positive difference by sharing fun and engaging literacy experiences across the globe.
Book Summary – “Walking through the misty Florida woods one morning, twelve-year-old Rob Horton is stunned to encounter a tiger — a real-life, very large tiger — pacing back and forth in a cage. What’s more, on the same extraordinary day, he meets Sistine Bailey, a girl who shows her feelings as readily as Rob hides his. As they learn to trust each other, and ultimately, to be friends, Rob and Sistine prove that some things — like memories, and heartaches, and tigers — can’t be locked up forever.”
