Augustus and His Smile by Catherine Rayner for ages 2-5 The illustrations in this children’s book by Catherine Rayner are just stunning. We love how Augustus dances and races as raindrops bounce and fly. The message that the world is a beautiful place if you just open your eyes to see it is just lovely. The very last page includes some Siberian tiger information about how they are an endangered species for those with kids really into facts.
The beautiful Amur or Siberian tiger is the largest sub-species of tiger and is primarily found in south-eastern Russia and northern China. In the 1960s it was close to extinction. Today only 450 in Wildlife.
