We go on all walks of life, and encounter many people along the way. Just like Malty the Blue Tiger / Marita la tigresita azul who sets on a journey looking for a diverse place, she comes across different types of animals. She roars to greet but her roar is so loud that she scares those she meets. In an attempt to not scare them because she’s different she hides her roars. Not being true to herself she continues her journey until she realizes she’s lost. What else can Malty do but roar? She does, and finds her way to a place that she’s accepted for who she is: Biscuit Brook.

Just like our children we need to teach them that in this journey called life, to be accepting of others and to especially accept yourself just as you are. There is beauty in all of us, and that’s exactly what Malty the Blue Tiger / Marita la tigresita azul is conveying to us. Not only do I love the message in this book but I love that it’s a dual language children’s book! Yes, it’s in both Spanish and English. I love how author K. Kloss flawlessly incorporated both languages throughout the book; especially the Spanish animal sounds! My son had a laugh with those. The colors and illustrations are inviting, and colorful. Excellent job done by illustrator Risa Horiuchi!
If you’re raising a bilingual child this book is for you. It’s perfect for children ages 5-8 years old. Throughout the book you’ll find key words in bold and in color. These words can be found at the end of the book as well as some interesting facts about tigers and their true colors. This book offers endless learning possibilities for little ones and older kids as well.

Released on March 8th this jewel is a must have in any children's home or school library. . . 💙About the book: "@maltythebluetiger (Marita la tigresita azul) is an engaging new dual language children's book in English and Spanish. Malty is a little tiger who goes on a journey to a beautiful, diverse place called Biscuit Brook, only to be criticized for the sound of her roar along the way. She yearns to make friends (we've all been there, especially as youngsters!), so throughout her journey, she attempts to mimic every character she meets: yellow birds, purple monkeys, and even a red truck. It is only when she is lost and alone that she discovers her true sound, and her true identity, are what will help her reach her destination." . . 💙This book is perfect for teaching children to embrace their individuality, and to love yourself just the way you are.
