K-Gr 2—Heidbreder's latest features crocodiles having fun in a variety of workplaces. The narration of their job description is in rhyme; the fun they have on the job is revealed after the ellipses, when the page is turned. The postal carrier likes to hide the mail; the crocodile doctors and nurses give their young patients extra band-aids. Other professions shown are chefs, bus drivers, house painters, florists, and teachers. The anthropomorphic crocodiles wear clothes and are illustrated in a variety of yellows, greens, and browns. They are not all children, but the adults have remained young at heart, and this becomes obvious when they are at work.
VERDICT This is an amusing rhyming book about enjoying one's job.
