Lee is a tiny tiger who lives with his Mum in the safety of his treetop house. There he feels safe from the dangers of the dark jungle below.

My Review
A Tiger Named Lee is a cute children's book about a little tiger named Lee. Lee is a bit scared of the jungle, so he stays in the treetops with his mom where he feels safe. But when a storm hits and knocks Lee and his mom to the ground, causing a break to Lee's mom's knee, it's up to Lee to face his fears and get her the help she needs. 
I thought this was a sweet, heartwarming story that showcases the love between a mom and her son. As a parent to two sons (15 and 6), it made me smile. I enjoyed it.
It also shows kids that it's okay to face your fears, even when you're really scared, and that sometimes new friends can be found even when things seem a bit hopeless. 
The rhyming scheme is easy for young readers to follow along with, and the illustrations are delightful. 
I would recommend this to parents of young readers, and young at heart readers.
5 stars!
