What Does Little Crocodile Say at the Park? (Little Crocodile)

by Eva Montanari (Author)

Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

A little crocodile explores a day at the park in this colorful, noisy book filled with sounds and new experiences -- some wonderful, some not -- that are sure to delight toddlers.

What sounds does Little Crocodile hear on a trip to the park?

Grandma says Sweet Pea!

The pigeons go flap, flap

The dandelion goes pffff

The chatter goes chit chat

The merry-go-round goes wheee

And the crocodile says... WAHHHH!

In this charming book of sounds, Little Crocodile visits the park with Grandma and Grandpa and experiences being left out, kindness and independence, ultimately enjoying their day . . . after a small meltdown, of course! Little ones will delight in the adorable illustrations and fun read-aloud, and parents will delight in the sly humor and familiar emotional rollercoaster of a toddler's day.
