    Lions, Tigers, and Bears oh my! Ever wonder how the Tiger got his stripes? Claw into this Folktale and learn how. Folktales always offer some sort of moral lesson towards the end as well as magic, or something that normally doesn't happen in a real-life scenario. These are some of the quality characteristics that come from a Folktale. Mostly everyone understands that tigers are born with stripes, but this folktale gets something very normal (a tiger) and switches it to where the animals talk and Lions, Tigers, and Bears oh my!

These are some of the quality characteristics that come from a Folktale. Mostly everyone understands that tigers are born with stripes, but this folktale gets something very normal (a tiger) and switches it to where the animals talk and there is a moral story being made. According to an article made by Sophie Starkmack, there are different types of Folktale Literature and different thing change such as including people, animals, magic, the moral, and such things. This book is great for the classroom library and not to mention this book originates from Vietnam so having a diverse set of books from different backgrounds is great for students to get a sense of how books such as Folktale change in different parts of the country.

It teaches the reader to think smart and to not be foolish. To be confident, but not boastful. This book taught a moral lesson and used a little humor to do it. Very entertaining.

    This book was one that immediately came to mind when we discussed folklore in class - because when my mom lived in Vietnam as a little girl when my grandaddy was stationed there that was her favorite book and I remember her telling me that. This book is classified as folklore. When I found it in our school library I was ecstatic!

This book is classified as folklore. When I found it in our school library I was ecstatic! This story is about the mighty tiger who is astounded by the animals who work for humans who have no shiny coat or claws or fangs but instead have this thing called wisdom - when Tiger demands that man give him this wisdom he is outsmarted and is tricked into a trap where a rope ends up burning his fur leaving him with stripes. This book would be fun to integrate within a science lesson related to characteristics of animals as a lesson launch and then you could have the students discuss if that's really how the tiger got his stripes and use that as your segway into the lesson. This book was a WOW book for me because it had sentimental value to my mom who is my best friend and made me feel really connected to her.

    This book is about how Tiger got his stripes. There are 3 characters in the story which are Tiger, Water Buffalo, and Man. Tiger is very proud of his coat, claws, and teeth. He is also afraid of the water buffalo but saw Man have control of water buffalo because of his wisdom. Tiger went to Man demanding that Man gives him wisdom or else he would eat him. Man then cleverly had Tiger tightly tied to a tree while he went to get wisdom for Tiger. Tiger was left there for the majority of the day and This book is about how Tiger got his stripes.

Man then cleverly had Tiger tightly tied to a tree while he went to get wisdom for Tiger. Tiger was left there for the majority of the day and got hungry, and so he broke free from the tree. The rope burned his coat and did not notice the stripes until he saw his reflection in the water. I liked this story because of the message, which is that wisdom is not given to you but obtained through experiences. A teaching idea using this book would be for 2nd graders. I would have 2-3 centers that have a folktale in each center (This book would be in one of the centers). In each center, my students would have to read the book, write a few sentences about the book, and determine the overall message of the book.

    An engaging Folk story, 1) My observation is this folk story is a great way of showing that not all information is not learnt at school, somethings are learnt by real life experience. 2) A connection I made was when first reading this book, I thought about Chinese new year and how they choose an animal for the year to my surprise the next year of the tiger will be in 2020!. This would be a great story to share to students to allow them to see and hear different things from varying cultures. 3) My An engaging Folk story, 1) My observation is this folk story is a great way of showing that not all information is not learnt at school, somethings are learnt by real life experience. 2) A connection I made was when first reading this book, I thought about Chinese new year and how they choose an animal for the year to my surprise the next year of the tiger will be in 2020!.

I have heard the name of the book but had never read it before? it seems to be a great folk story to read to younger students. 4) I was surprised to read this was a folk tail originating from Vietnam. 5) I loved the way the main characters interacted in the book, I believe the idea of a man and tiger talking was fun and engaging. I also enjoyed the idea that the tiger is talking about wisdom as if it is an item. Overall an engaging read I will definitely be using in my teacher career.

    This is an enjoyable telling of a folktale. Tiger learned from the water buffalo that man has wisdom, so Tiger tells a man to give him wisdom. The man was able to trick the tiger into not eating his goats, and Tiger ended up having stripes while continuing to seek for his wisdom.

    This book is so fun and engaging! It tells the story of how a tiger lacked wisdom. He wanted to be the most powerful animal in the jungle. He wanted to gain wisdom from an ox, and ended up being tied to a tree so long that it created stripes on his back. I would use this book and have students identify the moral of the story. Then, I would have them pick their favorite animal and write a folktale about how that animal got a characteristic on it's body. This book is so fun and engaging!

    * Could be used in a unit on folk tales from around the world, or as a lesson about etiology. * Example of what happens when we lose our temper...we don't think clearly and sometimes end up having to face consequences that we would otherwise avoid. * K-3 * Could be used in a unit on folk tales from around the world, or as a lesson about etiology. * Example of what happens when we lose our temper...we don't think clearly and sometimes end up having to face consequences that we would otherwise avoid. * K-3

    This is a fun tale about tiger searching for wisdom. The water buffalo ties him to a tree so that he won't devour the goats while he goes to retrieve wisdom. The ropes create stripes on tiger. He is still searching for wisdom today? This is a fun tale about tiger searching for wisdom. The water buffalo ties him to a tree so that he won't devour the goats while he goes to retrieve wisdom.

    This wonderful book engages students to be who they are. The tiger is the most powerful animal in the jungle. I would have students pick their favorite animal and tell which characteristic they would want that animal to have. Maybe its courageous, maybe its strong.

    This book was a old-fashioned for my taste. The illustrations weren't my favorite either. I think this one might need to stay on the shelf. This book was a old-fashioned for my taste. The illustrations weren't my favorite either. I think this one might need to stay on the shelf.

    This is a folktale about how a tiger "earned" his stripes. It is a folktale from Vietnam. I couldn't find any awards. This is a folktale about how a tiger "earned" his stripes. It is a folktale from Vietnam. I couldn't find any awards.

    A great story to teach that knowledge is not always gained through books but through real life experiences.
