What Does Little Crocodile Say At the Park?

We rated this book:


Little Crocodile goes to the park with his grandparents and encounters a wide breadth of nature and games in this slightly uneven work. Little Crocodile is playing with his toys at home when his grandparents come to pick him up to go to the park. Along the way, he hears the dandelion go puff-puff, the lizard go swish, the pigeons go flap, the pinwheel for flip, and more. Eventually as his grandparents are talking to other adults, the Little Crocodile goes to play with other children on the many apparatuses in the park including slides and swings. Each animal makes its own sound for the Little Crocodile to hear and this is how the different species communicate with each other. At the end of the day, it is time to go home and Little Crocodile is asleep after a fun filled day at the park with many new friends. The art is fairly colorful and drawn in that chalk/crayon sort of way to draw attention to a young reader’s eyes. The rhymes and words are fairly easy and designed to be a fairly early book for parents to read to young children. Overall though it feels fairly flat and is missing scenes to tie it all together.
