What would you do if you discovered a snaggle-toothed, gleaming-eyed crocodile under your bed?
In There Is a Crocodile Under My Bed! by Ingrid and Dieter Schubert (Lemniscaat), this is what happens upon such a discovery:
“There’s a crocodile under my bed!” says Sophie. “And I am not scared at all!”
The surprise visitor quickly turns into a friend as Sophie and Carl, the crocodile, perform circus stunts and prepare a pancake feast. Then it’s on to crocodile crafts and a bedtime story.
You can make a crocodile, too! This is just one of the many activities Publisher Spotlight provides to help you connect good kids books with kids who like to make and do, as well as read.
