This book is a version of The Ugly Duckling. It is a very cute story about a crocodile egg that rolls into a busy and unaware mother ducks nest. She hatches it along with her other eggs. One duck comes out striped, one yellow, one with blue spots, and one looking like a crocodile. Mother duck loves all of them equally and teaches them everything duck-like. One day some big crocodiles come along and make fun of “crocoduck” and try to make him betray his family because they want to eat the ducks. They say crocodiles are supposed to be bad. But “crocoduck” loves his family.
This is a great book to read to children about accepting each other’s differences and our families. The illustrations are adorable and funny. The blue and earthy colors are gorgeous and the characters expressions are hilarious. This is a classic that readers will fall in love with and hand down generation to generation.
