The Blue Crocodile by Sarah Case Mamika
In her best book yet, Sarah Case Mamika has packed the rhymed text of The Blue Crocodile with wonderful messages for children about friendship, the need to be liked, and acceptance of others just the way they are. This book is for ages 3 through 9, but I enjoyed reading it too.
Nicolas Peruzzo has illustrated this book with wonderful, engaging images that make you want to love these characters. Their expressions help to tell the story and give readers much to talk about.
Sarah Case Mamika is a Florida writer. She has also written Little River Dog and First Snow.
The book is on amazon.com, and BooksAMillion.com., as well an Ingram, Baker & Taylor, etc.
