This animal-themed activity invites you to go wild! After reading Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown, we look at an ancient Greek lion in the Museum’s collection. Then we learn how to make a lion or a different animal from a tissue box and other materials you probably have at home. You can find more pictures of animals in the MFA's collection.
Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, written and illustrated by Peter Brown (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2013) is available at a variety of booksellers, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshop, and Little, Brown. Mr. Tiger Goes Wild read with permission from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
