No Fair to Tigers: No Es Justo Para los Tigres
Eric Hoffman, Red Leaf Press, St. Paul, MN 1999
Delightful bilingual story about Old Tiger, Mandy's much loved stuffed toy. Old tiger is aging. He has lost an ear and his tail. Together with her family, they wash him up and put him back together. But Mandy can't get into the store to get a button for his eyes because the store isn't handicap accessible and Mandy uses a wheel chair. Terrific story of a child standing up for what is right!. In Spanish and English.

Encantadora historia bilingüe sobre un viejo tigre, el peluche muy querido de Mandy. El viejo tigre está envejeciendo. Ha perdido una oreja y su cola. Junto con su familia, lo lavan y lo remiendan. Pero Mandy no logra entrar en una tienda para comprar el botón que necesita para uno de los ojos del tigre porque la tienda no ofrece acceso a personas en silla de ruedas, como es el caso de Mandy. Este cuento facinante.
