Crocodaddy by Kim Norman (Day One of Three)

Spread the love

Stars: ****1/2

This week I’m touring Crocodaddy by Kim Norman. It’s a picture book aimed at the preschooler level.

Summary: A boy and his dad are at a pond when the boy decides to go on a Crocodaddy hunt. All of a sudden the dad is nowhere to be seen but a crocodile in his father’s shorts is swimming in the water and the boy is ready to hunt!

“Fearlessly, I step in front, captain of the Crocodaddy hunt!”

The book has a rhyming quality to it (front/hunt) and the boy is just adorable (look at that illustration on the cover!) Illustrations by the way were done by David Walker.

The boy taunts the Crocodaddy with a rhyme throughout the book:

“Crocodaddy, Crocodaddy swim away fast. This day’s swim could be your last!

So do you think the boy catches the Crocodaddy? You’ll have to read the book to find out!

The book is really cute, a great Father/Son read, perfect for Father’s Day. I don’t know if the preschooler set would understand that the crocodile is really the father, I had to explain it to my 3 year old. However even without knowing that, she still loved the storyline. 5 stars from my daughter for sure!
