This book is about a baby crocodile who loves eating watermelon. One day he ends up swallowing a seed and gets frantic thinking it will grow inside of him. It is good fantasy because crocodiles do not eat watermelon nor would they care if they happened to swallow a seed. would use for primary. Illustrations were inked on bristol with a brush pen, screen printed by hand, and drawn with a tablet in Photoshop. ( )

"The Watermelon Seed" is about a small crocodile who loves watermelons, until one day he swallowed a seed. The crocodile began to worry. He didn't want to turn into a watermelon or have a watermelon inside of him...growing. He began to panic about how the watermelon will grow inside of him:"vines growing out of his ears". Fortunately, he burped the seed out. The crocodile decided that he would never eat watermelons again..."well just a tinny tiny bite".

This book instruction purpose would be for beginning readers and to teach cause and effect. The students will draw the events that happened in the story in order or write the events in order having no the pictures on the board. They will retell the story and demonstrate their knowledge by acting the story in groups.
This book does a great job illustrating the feels of the crocodile as he panics, loves and feels bad for the watermelon. The beginning, ELLs can see the pictures and talk about the expressions on the crocodile face. They can attach the meaning of the emotions with the words on the page. ( )

This watermelon loving crocodile could eat the fruit breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Accidentally, he swallows a seed, and he worries that a melon will grow in his stomach. He is saved by a big burp, or is he? The last picture leaves you guessing. ( )
