Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo

The reason I abandoned “The Tiger Rising”

The reason why I abandoned “The Tiger Rising” by Kate DiCamillo, is because I think that it was below my reading level. At first I thought that the book was decent for my reading level because the story was describing the setting and characters and I did not realize what the true meaning of the book was. When I got further into the book, like pages in the forties, I realized that the book was more for children that I would estimate are in grades five or six. Because my reading standards are much higher, the book became to easy to read and soon became boring.
