10 Smiley Crocs by Ed Allen & Illustrated by Simon Williams
Published by Scholastic
‘Ten smiley crocs riding on a tandem bike. Ten smiley crocs riding on a tandem bike. And if one smiley croc suddenly hits a spike, there’ll be nine smiley crocs riding on a tandem bike.’
10 Smiley Crocs is a great book for young ones to help grasp the concept of counting. Utilising a well-known rhyming style to make counting and reading fun, this book hits the mark. The rhymes are hilarious and the illustrations make them even funnier. The various situations the cartoon crocs get themselves into are bright and electrifying, you’ll especially see what I mean by electrifying at number 8!
The pictures are really good fun, both sharp in their detail and brightly coloured. A perfect picture book for children to learn about counting before bed. Look for the hidden numbers on each page.
