Crocodiles Need Kisses Too Reviews
This is the story about a young crocodile, who wants to find his mother for some love and affection.Yet because he is a crocodile,he is judged by the other animals and they either run away from him or try to scare him. I enjoyed this story because of the bright, vibrant illustrations and the adjectives and repetition which will make this book a fun, memorable and enjoyable story for children to actively participate in. The sounds and key words are in large fonts, making the book very accessible. Yet I do feel that this story is quite similar to another story, Monkey Puzzle. This story would be ideal for a reception class. This could be made very interactive, with the children doing hand actions and gestures to all of the sounds that the crocodile and other animals make. It would be good to link to topics on families and zoo animals, especially if a trip to the zoo was planned. It could be used in Geography for a topic on Africa,the climate and animals that live there. It could also be used to inspire art projects on animals that live in hot climates.
More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/This is a cute book, very whimsically illustrated, with a story very similar to the classic, "Are you my mother?" In this case, the crocodile is born early and goes out exploring, meeting up with animals and their babies and missing food, shelter, and a mom's love. Of course, his mother will find him at the end and give him a big mommy crocodile kiss.My 7 year old daughter thought it was very cute how the other animals either ran away scared of the baby croc or growled menacingly (in the case of a tiger mother and cub). It was a cute book suitable for her learning to read or for reading out loud to her so she can enjoy the pictures.
The story of a baby crocodile who hatches out, and finding himself alone sets out to find a friend. He encounters a series of animals who are being loved and protected by their parents, but none of them want to be his friend. Finally he finds his own mother and a whole heap of crocodile babies, and they all receive lovely crocodile kisses. The pictures are cute and the text is fine, but one repeating section would be particularly fun to utilise in a storytime. The phrase "snip-o-dile, snap-o-dile, tiny little crocodile", would be great fun if the children are encouraged to make snapping noises with extended arms, alternating with the snip and the snap, when each word is mentioned.
As read by River Song :)
I picked this book out because I liked the name of the book. I thought it was a cute name for a book. What I took from this book is that even though you may look mean you still need love.
Good to read aloud with noises and phrases to repeat
Pendant un temps mort au salon du livre, je lis des livres jeunesse ;)
Very fun read, with darling illustrations!
