   I would have it in my classroom library and recommend it to all of my students
I was impressed by how well- written the book was. It helps my interest so that I read it in two sittings. I couldn't remember the content of the three novels I was reading at the time. I remembered that it was about children who are fighting emotional battles and finding healing through friendship with peers and exotic animals. There is a tiger in the story. I would recommend it to all of my students if I had it in my classroom library. It's about sixth grade or below reading level.

   The Tiger Rising- MUST READ
The book The Tiger Rising is well written. Kate DiCamillo is one of my favorite authors. We could not get enough of it. Each day at the end of our read aloud time, my students would beg for just one more chapter, one more page, one more paragraph, or one more sentence. There is so much symbolism in this book that young children can connect to throughout the book. I recommend reading this book with a group of children because it allows for a lot of discussion about character traits, motivation, struggles, symbolism, and theme.

   Loved this book
My granddaughter started reading this in her 4 th grade class and asked me to order a copy for her at home because she misses going to class. She forgot we were only reading 2 chapters a day when we were reading this book. It had my 10 year old trying to read it on her own, which is something we rarely see and she loved it. Hats off to books that are uplifting. That was what she said!

   Great Book/ story.
I read the book as well as my grandson because he was doing virtual learning and he had to read this book. It was a great book for my grandson's age group and I enjoyed the book as well. I am his grandmother.

   A disappointing book
My 10 yo daughter and I are big fans of Kate DiCamillo, but neither of us liked this book. The dead mother and father theme is getting old. The adults were useless, the tiger was barely in the story, everyone was depressed and lonely, and the plot was slow. The ending was tragic and unconvincing. Not her best work.

   Best young adult book ever!
As an elementary school teacher, I look for books that my students can relate to, and this book is an example of that. DiCAMillo offers an interactive read aloud that engages powerful thinking and allows students to make connections. She can bring real world issues and characters to life in a phenomenal setting. She has mastered the art of writing rich literature that both children and adults can relate to in a deeply personal way.

   Reluctant Readers will love it.
A good book for reluctant readers, a read- aloud, or a group read. When scenes are described, students draw what they read, or sculpt with clay. It makes reluctant readers see the story. For grades 4-5.
