I remember reading this book over and over when I was little! I loved the fact that Sophie couldn't have a bath because the tiger had drunk all the water in the taps.
Activity: Make a tiger!
Resources: black, orange, red and white A4 paper or card, scissors, glue, ruler, eraser.
What to do:
1) Using a pencil and ruler divide paper into 1.5 cm strips.
2) Do the same with the orange paper to make 4 strips, then fold the paper lengthways and cut out the strips. They should be 1.5 cm in width and half 10.5 cm long. Do this with the white paper too.
3) Cut the white and orange strips out and start to glue them onto your black paper, using the pencil lines as guides. For the third orange strip, the one with the ears, add two circular shapes onto the end of an orange strip. To make the legs, use 4 cm long strips.
I got the idea for this tiger from this Tom Eckersley print.
