Professional Crocodile by Giovanna Zoboli and Mariachiara Di Giorgio

Genre: Children's Picture Book
Publisher: Chronicle Kids
Release Date: August 1, 2017

To start each day, Mr. Crocodile gets out of bed, goes to the bathroom, grooms himself, has breakfast, and goes off to work. Watch as he navigates the city and gets to the subway. Where is he going? What kind of work does he do?

Professional Crocodile is a picture book. There are no words. Instead, children tell their own story by looking at the pictures. Multiple pictures fill each set of pages, so there's a lot to explore and narrate on your own.

The ending was quirky and not what I expected. I like that it led to a relatively big surprise. While there are no reading skills to build, your child will get to explore his or her storytelling skills, and that's a huge plus. Look for Professional Crocodile on August 1st.
