Great story
My 4 y.o. LOVED this book so much that we checked it out from the library 3 times. I finally decided it was time to buy it. The look on his face on Christmas morning was priceless. We read it at least a few days a week.
Our second graders highly recommend this repetitive tale of a positively pink reptile looking for some peace and quiet. Longing for solitude, one cranky crocodile decides to leave the crowd behind by attempting new jungle activities solo. Will the others honor his wishes to be left alone? Will the cantankerous croc relish in his new found freedom? His adventurous antics are captured in imaginative paint colors, childlike, cartoony style and unexpected page formatting-- all of which delights this audience of seven and eight year olds. Our young reviewers suggest taking a look at the end pages, then sharing this title aloud with a group of kindergarteners, first or second graders, and following the reading with a discussion about friendship.
This book is a fun story with great illustrations!!! My 3.5 year old really enjoys this book. Tshe crocodile's efforts to find some alone time and space seem to really speak to my sons introverted self. But I think there is a good message in this book for him -- that it is fun to spend time alone but also fun to share activities with friends. This book also seems perfect for the kid who gets annoyed by a younger sibling wanting to follow him or her around.
This is a quality childrens book, with cute illustrations and a simple tale that my daughter loves. The lesson I gleaned from the story: it champions individualism but also acknowledges merit in being social and having friends.
