The Crocodile Who Didn't Like Water by: Gemma Merino

There once lived a family of crocodiles with six baby crocodiles.   All but one of the babies loved the water.  You thought  all crocodiles loved the water?  In Gemma Merino's debut picture book, The Crocodile Who Didn't Like Water, we meet one young crocodile who does not like water.  He wants to enjoy the water just like his brothers and sisters, but he is very afraid of the water.  He tries various ways of getting into the water but each one fails.  One day he finds out who he really is and what he was meant to do.  Fulfilling his own destiny is where he finds happiness.

This is a fun read-aloud book that I am sure all ages will enjoy.  When listeners or readers find out little crocodile's true identity, they are sure to giggle.  I also believe this book will inspire us all to do what makes us happy.  That will certainly help make the world a happier place for everyone.

Happy Daily Reading
