My Review: 

Balloons for Tiger is a good book for younger readers. It is a good way of teaching young ones about the experience of losing their beloved pet.  It does so by making young ones to stay captivated from start to finish. I admired how the author was able to use this story to bring out a way of showing how one can heal and grieve such an important friend in their life. I found it to be a wonderful tool to help little children process of what is happening. It is okay to be sad and to be missing their friend, but they still have their memories.

I enjoyed Balloons for Tiger’s illustrations. The illustrator is the talented Vanessa Alexandre. Her creative gift shines throughout the book.  The pages were so beautiful and vibrant that would catch any young reader’s eye. I adored the colorful pictures on every single page. They perfectly follow the story and helps brings it to life.

Balloons for Tiger is getting a very well deserved five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it for young readers who are between the ages of three and seven years old. It would be a perfect to gift to give to any child that is trying to understand and are grieving the loss of their furry friend. I will be looking for more books by Lori Orlinsky in the future.

I received a hard copy of Balloons for Tiger from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
