CROCODADDY by Kim Norman....Review & Give Away!

I have an adorable book to tell you about today...CROCODADDY by Kim Norman.  This board book is so much fun to read and it has become a story time staple here at Reviewed by Mom.  I should mention that we are already great big fans of Kim Norman because of her winter tale, Ten on the Sled (read my full review HERE) so we could not wait to read CROCODADDY.  Here is the scoop....

Celebrate the imagination—and the love between father and son—with this new board book edition of the fun, rhyming, and totally original story. On a hot summer's day, a young boy playfully sets out on a “crocodaddy hunt” in the lake. Following the creature's shadow, dark and wet, he's soon taking a wild ride on the grinning croc's back. And when they leave the water, something wonderful happens: Crocodaddy transforms into…just DADDY. Bright, energetic illustrations (complete with wily crocodile in Dad's swim trunks) highlight the story's humor and warmth. 

Because we are such fans of Ten on the Sled, we had very high hopes from this new release and we were not disappointed!  Kim Norman has a real talent for writing in fun rhymes.  This book is so much fun to read and the story is both sweet and silly.   My children think it is hilarious to see the crocodile in swim trunks and relish the adventure the boy has with this scaly creature!  As a parent, I am touched by the picture Norman paints of the fun loving relationship between parent and child.  The illustrator, David Walker, is also a real talent, making a crocodile into a smiling, loving playmate.  This a book your child will ask for  over and over again and you will be  happy to oblige.  Be sure to pick up a copy today on Barnes & Noble (click HERE) or  from Amazon....
