This book is a delight -- it is a great book for emergent readers, but it is more fun to read out loud. Zack's alligator has attitude -- and the giggles from my daughter made it a book we had to add to her personal library.

I'm writing on behalf of Victor, aged 7. He wants me to tell everyone that Zack the alligator was a really cool book! He enjoyed reading it a lot.

I read Zack's Alligator by Shirley Mozelle. In this book there's a boy named Zack and his alligator Bridget. Zack's uncle sends a package and it the package is an alligator key chain. The alligator is Bridget. When you get Bridget wet she gros and turns into a live alligator. When she dris out, she shrinks. BridGet adores meat loaf and walks. Zack's mom always thinks that BridGet is just a key chain because she never sees BridGet when she's big.

I like this book because Zack gets a friend. This book used to be my favorite when I was little. You have to read this book to find out how it ends.

It was my daughter's turn to bring in a book to share this week. "No princess books," the teacher requested. I guess I am not the only one who feels inundated by royalty these days. While you might initially think this book is for boys, the star of the book is actually a girl. As a parent, I shape how my children will see the world, and finding books like this one will help her to see past stereotypes.

I felt that the text was cohesive as a story but simple enough for children to read and follow. Some of these I Can Read Books really do not impress me with their simple sentences per page formats which seem better for learning to talk than for learning to read. This book does a nice job with its funny and original storyline. In addition, the illustrations have a colored pencil and crayon feel to them which are pleasing to the eye, almost like a child colored them.

Wonderful illustrations and engaging story. My three-year-old grandson loves this book. Some day he'll be able to read it himself.

Got this for my 3 year old son. He finds it quite funny. When you have to read a book several times to a child. It's a keeper. Good story which would be great for kids reading on their own.
