Interesting Things Happen in the Sillabobble Sea!

As a mother of a 3 year old daughter and an early childhood educator, this is probably my most favorite book available. The story revolves around a monkey who spies a banana tree on an island across the way and tricks the crocodiles into making a bridge for him to go over and retrieve some bananas. Each page is very colorfully illustrated and is told in a very catchy poetic form. Through the story you count crocodiles from one to ten and back again. The book is short but puts a smile on your face all the way through.This story is excellent for teaching values, sequence in stories and in counting, and is a great introduction to crocodiles. A huge fan of The Crocodile Hunter, my daughter finds this story entertaining, and is one of the only stories she asks me to read over and over. It's nice because this is one of the only stories I like reading over and over!

An Instant Hit!

This was an instant hit with my 2 and 1/2 year old nephew. He loved the "eyes" in the water in the illustrations at first reading of the book. Then he pointed out more and more things on each page that he noticed as it was read. Wonderful illustrations on each page. And I loved the message of outwitting the crocodiles! Very neat book.

One of our favorite books!

We LOVE this book! We have read it over and over again. My daughter (age 4) can't get enough of it. I read it to my niece and now she has her own copy and asks to have it read nearly every day. We bought a copy for our preschool teacher and she reads it to her classes. The rhymes are fun for the kids to hear (and the reader to read!) and there are never ending surprises in the illustrations. We've been reading this book for a year now and it isn't old yet!

A cut above the rest - clever story, great illustrations!

We have 2 boys, and we own over 200 children's books. This book is one of the 3 best if not THE best book on our shelves. The words, the cadence, the story, and the illustrations are very clever. We like this book so much we often give it to our friends' children as a birthday gift.

Excellent book for toddlers!

My two year-old is endlessly fascinated by this book, it's story and it's illustrations! She can't get enough of the fanciful crocodiles with their "mohawks", or "chicken pox", and delights in the wonderful rhythm that Sierra uses to write her tale. It doesn't matter that the book doesn't tell us how many crocs there can have fun counting them all together!
