Summer Storytime: Crocs/Gators

Last week's theme was frogs and alligators. We read:

A Girl and Her Gator by Sean Bryan. I always find a volunteer to wear our gator puppet on his/her head while I read this book aloud. Their facial expressions and reactions are just priceless. Definitely better than if I just read it myself. In a pinch, I have done it with an alligator on my head, but it is funnier with another person.

Snip Snap: What's That? by Mara Bergman
I love the "YOU BET THEY WERE" refrain!

The Wide-Mouthed Frog by Keith Faulkner
Classic.

A Frog in the Bog by Karma Wilson
A couple of the kids guessed early on that the "log" the frog is sitting on isn't really a log, but they didn't seem too bothered. It is not the only surprise in this book. I adore Wilson's books.
