All About Alligators, written and illustrated by Jim Arnosky, is an informational picture book for young readers. This book discusses what alligators eat, where they may live, the various sounds they make, their growth patterns, and how they may interact with humans.
Jim Arnosky does an excellent job of clearly explaining the scientific information to young readers. The illustrations provided throughout the text are labeled, which helps facilitate a better understanding of each concept to the reader. ( )

Way too short and unsatisfying.  And the only thing about crocs is that they have narrower noses. ( )

This book tells readers all about alligators; where they live, what they eat, how big they are, and much more. Prior to reading this, I didn't know much about alligators, but I have been intrigued ever since I moved to Louisiana. One thing that I now know is that alligators have a third eyelid for seeing under water. Also, I can tell the difference between alligators and crocodiles thanks to the illustrations that showed me how crocodiles have a narrower snout.
This book is great for a science lesson on reptiles, especially for students in Louisiana or other areas where alligators are prevalent. It will teach them all about alligators and the dangers that they may present to humans as well. ( )

I thought this book was decent. It was kind of long for a children's text I thought, but it can be read by an adult to the child. This text can be used to teach children about alligators in an animal unit. It can also be used to do a unit on Alligators or the letter A. All in all, I think it could have many uses, but it would not be my number 1 pick. ( )

The title of All About Alligators explains exactly what the book is about. Arnosky writes the book to tell facts about alligators. He gives facts such as an alligator's habitat, their hunting style, and body structure. He gives factual information without becoming boring. I love the illustrations. Arnosky has beautiful watercolor paintings of alligators. ( )
