Little Croc’s Purse was given to us for review by Random House. This is the story of a little crocodile who finds a purse full of money, he then finds himself in a dilemma about what to do with it and is given lots of advice by other crocodiles. Thus allowing the author to cover a lot of moral and childhood themes including bullying, friendship and looking after your stuff.
All in all, this is a wonderfully illustrated and presented little book with some great opportunities for discussion. I think that my nearly three year old is still a little bit young to appreciate the themes, but we did enjoy looking at the illustrations and talking about each of the crocodiles and their personalities.
Personally, I enjoyed looking through this book and reading it to him. It’s a real visual gem with a thought provoking tale. I feel quite inspired to make a little fabric crocodile for him. so, another book to recommend and one which will stay on our bookshelf for a good few years to come.
