Ravi’s Roar

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Youngest children have a trying time of it. Sometimes it’s fun to be the family baby, but not when you’re too small for all the most exciting playground rides, when you come last in all the races and when your older brothers and sisters buy up all the ice-cream before you get to the van.

When Ravi has just about had enough of being last in line and too small for everything, he roars – and turns into a tiger! It’s great fun getting his own way, at least for a little while. Eventually, Ravi finds out that being the top predator is not as much fun as he thought, but sometimes he still needs to stand up for himself by giving a little roar.

Tantrums can be an overwhelming experience for the child having them, and the vivid illustrations in this enjoyable book are a great way to portray that. Ravi ends the book able to call on his inner tiger when he really needs to, but he also learns that being savage and violent can’t solve all his problems. There is a valuable message about the balance between standing up for yourself while also being a good playmate.
