Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Do you know the difference between alligators and crocodiles? For one, their snouts are different¾alligators have wide rounded ones while crocodiles have snouts that come to a point. These and many facts about reptiles that date back to the dinosaurs will fascinate young readers. They will learn what these creatures eat, how they hunt, raise their young and can survive for months without eating. Crocodiles and alligators may seem slow, but they can swim at five times the speed of a human and they can also move pretty quickly on land. Crocodiles are good parents and surprisingly, the Nile crocodile kills more humans than lions do. An excellent selection for home or school and a great way for kids to learn about this very unusual and ancient creature. A "Hello Reader! Science," Level 3, Grades 1 and 2. 2001, Scholastic,
