Great repetition and mystery. The kids went crazy for it. It's a little too involved for a young toddler set, but it could be done anywhere from 2 1/2 or 3 all the way through ages 6 or 7.

Good storytime fun.

Snip Snap What's that? It's the alligator who is after the children, and yes they are scared! But in the end they find the couarge to face the alligator, was he scared? I would use this book with PK-K grades. This would be used durning a theme on alligators or feelings, talking about being brave.

This book has amazingly colorful pages with full illustrations. Not leaving any white space. The words are expressive with different sizes and fonts to add life to the book. It makes reading the book with passion and excitement just that much easier. It shows the children being afraid of the alligator and all the things that are scary about the alligator. But, eventually the children get tired of being scared of the alligator. They grow courage and yell at the alligator to go away. Thats when the alligator gets scared of them and goes back home. It's bright illustrations truly make this kid-friendly and expressive. I would highly recommend this book for a read-aloud. ( )
