Kids Pick: Crocodiles Play by Robert Heidbreder

Book Cover Image

This is a seriously funny book. It is about three crocodiles playing mixed up games in a dream. It is hilarious but.... in rhyme. It is dangerous's only a dream. The illustrations by Rae Mate are bright and colourful and help tell the story. We highly recommend that you get this book and read it out loud. It is best read out loud to someone. Then you can both laugh together and it's always more fun to laugh with someone.
