My children (17months) LOVE watermelon so I reached out to the library and they recommended this book. I love the BIG illustrations which makes for an easy read. The onomatopoeias used by the author creates the perfect capture audience. The facial expressions of my children are priceless, especially when baby croc swallows the seed.

My 2 yr old loves this book! He laughs hysterically when the seed is swallowed.

Fun for the reader and the listener!
Fun even as a frequent reread.

Greg Pizzoli is one of my favorite illustrators. Each of his books generally follow a color scheme of about 3 to 4 different colors, usually muted tones, and they are so eye-catching!

My daughter adored this book, she would ask to read it again as soon as we finished it. Even at two she got the joke. And the harder she laughed the more I hammed up the crocodile's distress.

This book really catched my little ones attention. She loved it so much that she memorised what was written on each page even if she doesn't know how to read. Short sentences made it easy to read to a 3 years old.

Little ones love this read. Anytime you work a belch into storytime is a win.

This book is great for story time, especially if you read it with a lot of expression! The kids really get into it and can't stop giggling!
