“Do You Know? Crocodiles!” by Alain M. Bergeron, Michel Quintin, and Sampar is a very funny book and has a lot of scientific information about crocodilians.
This book is a picture book, almost a comic book. The drawings are very funny and have humorous speech bubbles. One of the funniest scenes is when some people went to meet someone at a pond and called the person. The ringing of the phone comes from the crocodile. Hmmm. I wonder where that friend went!
This book has a lot of information about crocodilians which include crocodiles, alligators, caiman, and gharials. It talks about their feeding habits and habitat. Their swimming power comes almost entirely from their tails, and they can hold their breath for a long time.
I would recommend “Do You Know? Crocodiles!” by Alain M. Bergeron, Michel Quintin, and Sampar to my friends. There is a lot to learn from it and it is very funny.
