Story time winner!,
This review is from: The Watermelon Seed (Hardcover)
This entertaining read is the perfect book for summer! It's a great choice for story time as it just begs to be performed. Story readers will find much to play with here as this darling little croc details his long time love of watermelon, his despair and fear at having swallowed a seed and of course that ever so satisfying and seed producing watermelon burrrrrp. This one is as much fun to read as it is to listen to. Every kid has thought about what happens when you swallow a seed, so they will all be able to relate to the little croc's fear of having a seed growing in his guts. It's a priceless gag from most everyone's childhood and the author has done a great job of turning it into a picture book filled with energy and hilarious moments.
Pink watermelons and a green crocodile color the pages of this book in simple designs that made me hungry for a big slice of melon. The author uses white space, green space and pink space to his advantage, adding drama to this short, simple little story. The perfect length for story time, this is a must have for summertime themes and when you just need a quick laugh. The Watermelon Seed is a sure winner for any preschool or early elementary audience.
