Little crocodile spends his day exploring the beach and campsite taking in the many sights and sounds that nature has to offer.  Toddlers will delight in his adventures and mimic the sounds and antics that he portrays. 

"What sounds does Little Crocodile hear on a trip to the beach?
The sunscreen goes squirt
The wave goes splash
The fish goes blub
The seagulls go ark, ark
The watch goes tick, tock
And the crocodile says . . . WAHHHH!"

With Big Crocodile as his campanion Little Crocodile playfully experiences sandcastles, sun, waves and the full day of exploration.  The story also  includes a tiny meltdown which may be familiar to many of the wee readers. 

The colour pallet is soft and the adorable illustrations are engaging.  The ongoing onomatopoeia  throughout the book is perfect for the targeted age group.  

This cute book is part of a series and would be a great addition to any library.  I highly recommend, " What Does Little Crocodile Say At the Beach?"

Thanks to Netgalley and Penguin Random House Canada, Tundra Books for a free digital copy.

A day in the life of little crocodile. The sketchy style of illustration is cute as is the use of onomatopoeia to describe the events of the day.

The writing on this book makes for a very interactive read with children! Each page is an opportunity to make a fun sound and action. I think younger kids would love this. The illustrations are not as engaging but the text makes up for it!

What Does Little Crocodile Say at the Beach? is a wonderful story for young readers to learn about onomatopoeia and sounds. The illustrations are whimsical and captivating! It's also a relatable story for young readers when Little Crocodile has a little meltdown in the story, gets it together, and ultimately enjoys the day with big Crocodile! This story would be a great gift for young readers or a fun read-aloud for young students.

First off, let me just say these are the most precious, beautiful, Peter Rabbit type color palette illustrations. I could not get enough of them, and the little ones will love them just as much. Little crocodile hits the beach, and experiences a day of sandcastles, waves, hermit crabs, jellyfish, and all sorts of playing and adventures. This one is an excellent introduction to introducing the connection between objects and sounds, and expressing the sounds certain things make. Stimulating in every way, as well as beautiful.

This is a sweet little book.. Little kids will be able to relate to Little Crocodile. Montanari makes the Little Crocodile completely realistic. I will be a perfect bedtime story.

Thank you to NetGalley and Tundra Books, for the opportunity to read and review this title.

Everything from the colours to the onomatopoeia was scrumptious! A great little book to help little ones understand words, places, and noises! This was a fun and easy read. 

As part of a series, it is even easier to pick up and share with your friends and family. A c harming book I will gift to others who visit me at the beach this summer.

This book was simple and fun.  The kids in story time would have a blast making all the sounds and actions.  Plus, the illustration are soft and fell like the tiniest of totes with a warm hug.  Loved this book, and it will make a great addition to any library.

This is a cute little book that is great for when babies are first learning how to speak. Lots of great sounds that babies will be able to copy. The illustrations are also very well done and connect with the authors messages.

I love the story as well, it’ll be one to read as he grows with a lovely message.

Ask any little kid what a cow or a dog says, and they will be able to provide you with the correct answer. Now, what does the crocodile say? Especially a little one, that is at the beach?

The answer may surprise you, but it is closer to a human child’s sound than you may think.

Eva Montanari wrote a cute little story about the life of a baby crocodile and the adventures it encounters throughout the day. The illustrations are beautifully done and round out the story in a nice way.

A cute adventurous tale about the sounds experienced on a day out. 

Little Crocodile is going on a beach adventure with Big Crocodile. Throughout the day there are many different sounds the two hear. 

This is a book full of onomatopoeia that matches the locations Little Crocodile visits during the day. It is a wonderful introduction to the various sounds experienced when in a beach setting. It also is great for sound association with nature and actions. 

The characters are adorable and the story has a cute playful rhythm that is perfect for young readers. 

Thank you to NetGalley and Penguin Random House, Tundra Books, for the opportunity to read and review this title.

The illustrations in this one were so great. 

It’s a simplistic book that very young children may like. 

Older children may not be as interested as there isn’t really any actual story. It was more pages with sound descriptions. Super cute illustrations though.

Loved this beautiful picture book full of onomatopoeia for pre-schoolers and early elementary readers. It tells a gentle, yet action packed story of a young crocodile camping and playing at the beach with their parent. For each activity there is a corresponding sound that kids will have so much fun saying along with the book. Highly recommend! Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for the chance to read.
