Kid Bits - Tricky Troubles

There was a "T" in Ms. Rachel's letter box this week for Tricky and Trouble and Tigers. You can find the stories from Storytime and remember where the tricks and troubles and tigers come in:

Sam And The Tigers: a new telling of little black Sambo by Julius Lester and pictures by Jerry Pinkney.
Anansi And The Moss-Covered Rock by Janet Stevens.
You may be interested in the original text of Little Black Sambo by Helen Bannerman, with new illustrations by Christopher Bing.

The most memorable part is not the trick or the trouble ... the best part is the tigers turning into delicious tiger butter and being spread on pancakes for dinner. Yumm!
