Book Reviews ~ Brothers in Stripes

Liz KernBrothers in Stripes by Author Liz Kern

Another delightful children’s book penned by talented Author Liz Kern. Tiger cubs, Hamjou and Zazou, are not your typical “Brothers in Stripes”. The both have much more of a tendency to overeat and sit idly by while the other tiger cubs enjoy frolicking in the jungle.

Hamjou and Zazou also have a tendency to be a little disobedient and one day they wander a bit too far from home. They have a frightful experience when a herd of elephants rush by and almost trample them. They do manage to escape, however…in their haste they fall into a deep hole. Although Mother and Father Tiger search for them…after several days they are still nowhere to be found. Thank goodness for these two tiger cubs that the rainy weather manages to save the day. Now they have a great story with a lesson or two to share with future cubs of their own.

First of all, I love reading and reviewing children’s book. As a grandmother to nine grandchildren, they hold a special appeal to me. Secondly, author Liz Kern is a wonderful children’s author. This is her third book and it succeeds in doing exactly what she intended to do. The pictures are wonderful and the message gently touches home. Children are not so different from our animal friends. They also require regular exercise, a healthy diet, and the opportunity to learn the benefits of obeying their parents and not wandering too far from home. The captivating illustrations in this children’s book definitely add to the reading pleasure. Good stuff!
