This book was super fun to read! I think that elementary students would love the idea of the finger puppets in the book! The illustrations were so bright and happy too! I would read this book aloud in my classroom & discuss how we all need to do our part to make the classroom run smoothly. I could read this at the beginning of the year then lead into classroom jobs and responsibilities.

A little boy I babysit has this book and wants me to read it all the time! The finger puppet aspect is what he really enjoys. Now, whenever I leave he will tell me "See you later, Alligator"! I must say it is super cute! Great book for little ones!!

Simple story about a lazy alligator with a finger puppet that adds on more fun. My 5-month-old was completely enthralled.

I loved the puppet involved in this book. I liked the word font, and also the bright colors in the illustrations in this book. I also liked the last page where it said the words, "Munch, Slobber, Burp, etc." Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I would recommend this book to young children (their parents reading it to them).

This fun book has a finger puppet alligator which your toddler can mover throughout the story - once he has realised that it's not actually real! The story introduces

What an awesome book! It's one of my top two favorite purchases from PLA this past week. What's better than a book w/ a puppet in it?! The kids will love it in storytime, especially when alligator continually turns down crocodile's exhortations to help out w/ various chores in order to do his own, fun thing. But the tables are turned when Alligator wants to share Crocodile's lunch and young kids will understand that justice has been served.

I started reading this out loud, practicing to see if I

I really love this book and learn a lot. I really feel for my mother. I act like Alligator. So I go by wait-a-minute girl by her. Whenever she does house chores and asks for help, she call me. And usually at that time, I really do some important work and need to concentrate on it. That's why I say 'wait a minute.' Sometimes I overuse that word. But, living with family, each member is supposed to help each other, I think. New year has come. I will do my best.

I need my own house, though...

the finger puppet in the front was both really good and really bad.
really good for kids. (they think its so funny and fun!)
really bad for teachers. (say goodbye to your class structure. everyone needs to try. everyone must show each other their version of the same joke)

A great rhyming book, and it has finger puppets. young kids will definitely love it. It will help them with letter and word sounds and be very entertaining.
