Who will take home the classroom’s pet alligator while school is out for a week? The surprises that lie in store are not what the teacher had anticipated. This fun book can lead to interesting reflections on the relationships between children and adults, as well as the importance of listening.
It doesn’t surprise me that children enjoy this book so much. Behind the simple story I’m sure they recognize how adults, many times, do not truly pay attention to children. And thus they enjoy that the protagonist was able to take the crocodile so uneventfully to Aunt Henrietta’s house.
