I find crocodiles to be fascinating. The only time I've ever seen one is at a zoo, so I'm not sure that counts. After A While Crocodile: Alexa's Diary is a fictional portrayel of a real program that allowed Costa Rican children to raise American crocodiles in their classroom. The story tells of a girl named Alexa who helps raise a crocodile until it is able to be released into the wild. When reading it, kids will learn foreign words and their definitions. They will also learn statistics about crocodiles and caiman. The pictures show both colored illustrations and real photos. The book is interesting and educational.
The "For Creative Minds" section in the back of the book further educates with the differences between alligators, crocodiles, and caiman. It also explains the differences between a child's teeth and a crocodile's teeth. Furthermore, there's information on crocodile conservation and a story about Dr. Brady Barr, the only person that has ever captured all 24 species of croc in the wild.
After A While Crocodile: Alexa's Diary is a Fall 2016 release from Arbordale Publishing.
One person will win After A While Crocodile: Alexa's Diary children's book.
