Editorial Reviews

Review

"A lovely story with great morals and values, nicely packaged with interesting, highly detailed and brightly coloured illustrations. I know this is one book that will be pulled out time and time again for bedtime reading ! 4.5 stars out of 5" Madhouse Family Reviews 20091229 "an absolutely wonderful story for young children...with a strong, moral message and values presented in a fun and endearing manner. I would have no problem reading this story again and again at bedtime." My Child 20100114 "I really enjoyed reading this book to the children and they enjoyed listening. The illustrations are lovely and we spotted something new each time we read it. Although a moral tale, it's not over the top.At each twist and turn they asked questions and we discussed the dilemma faced by Little Croc." Are We Nearly There Yet Mummy 20100127 "It's a gorgeous little book published by Red Fox. It is fabulously illustrated with a beautifully written and humorous storyline that covers the issues of honesty, generosity and friendship." Rosie Scribble 20100129 "The illustrations are bright and cheerful and the crocodiles are just charming...other themes are introduced with a lightness of touch, such as not giving in to bullying, still being liked and respected by others even when opinions on the best course of action differ, a discussion of what gives an object value, and a rather sensible approach to financial management which could make this a good book to read if you are about to start giving your kids pocket money." Playing by the Book 20100201 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
This story reminded me of the word temptation. Kids (and adults) can be put in positions where they are tempted to make the wrong decision - because they might benefit. Long story short here.....Little Croc does the right thing but not without his friends pressuring him to keep the purse. In the end, he gets to keep the purse as his reward for being honest. The only thing I would change in this story is putting more focus on the internal rewards he received for doing the right thing. Sure, it's great he gets the purse - but that's not the TRUE reward. Make sure to go into this with your kids/students. Definitely glad this is on my bookshelf. There are not a ton of good picture books on stealing so I'm happy to see this one published.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Yana V. Rodgers on March 5, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Little Croc's game of hide-and-seek with his friends took on an unexpected twist when he found a purse filled with money. Although his friends all wanted to divide up the cash, Little Croc decided to do the right thing by bringing the lost purse to the police station. Many temptations for spending that money lay along the way, though. Would the purse and all the contents ever find their way to the rightful owner?

A lesson at the end of the story about saving, sharing, and spending money make the book a useful vehicle for talking with young children about some of the basic functions of money. Humorous illustrations help to liven up the story and encourage children to think about the scruples of finding lost valuables.
