Wildlife Painter & Children's Book Illustrator
Tiger Trail

Written by Kay Winters
Illustrated by Laura Regan
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
From Kirkus Reviews
The author and illustrator of Wolf Watch here team up again to let the tigress speak, "I am the tigress/ I walk alone." Winters’s tigress describes how she hunts to feed her cubs, washes them with her warm wet tongue, carries them to safety to avoid a lurking leopard, and teaches them to swim, hide and hunt until at last they can live on their own... Regan’s huge black and gold tigress has strength and dignity while the inquisitive cubs are cuddly and cute... This is an attractive nature read-aloud for the picture-book set. Kirkus.

​From Book Links:
​This attractive picture book with gorgeous wildlife paintings and dramatic narration by a bold mother tiger, is a great choice for classroom units on animals....Exciting scenes depict the hunt for prey, and as the cubs grow they join in the action. All full color double page spreads, the pictures are highly detailed and will invite repeated browsing.

"Morning is bath time.
Kits mew to take their turn.
My rough, red tongue
licks each striped face.
Kits close their eyes
and purrrrrr."

A tigress must teach her cubs 
to be independent. 
She is both tender and stern 
as she carries her kits to safety, 
snarls to teach them manners, 
and demonstrates swimming, 
stalking, and hunting. 
And while the tigress is a powerful hunter, danger lurks in her wild surroundings...
