Summary
There's a big race on Sunday-- but can a little crocodile triumph? Find out in this Level B story, simple enough for young readers to read on their own.

The crocodile is hopeful, but when a bigger, mean crocodile tells him there's no chance, he starts to wonder if he's good enough.

But with a little motivation from his friend, and a lot of practice and hard work, he's ready to prove himself when the big race comes around!

Using simple text and lots of sight words, Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator Betsy Lewin has created a story about determination-- and the importance of support from your friends! The easy-to-read story is accompanied by energetic ink and watercolor illustrations, adding interest and detail to the narrative, showcasing the little crocodile's practice and the shared joy of his triumph.

The award-winning I Like to Read® series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards. Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors--create original, high quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read with parents, teachers, or on their own!

Level B readers feature short sentences with high-frequency words, for kindergarten readers who've mastered Level A and are ready to build more fluency. The illustrations provide clues to word meanings. When you've mastered these simple stories, move on to level C!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This entry in the publisher's I Like to Read series begins with two young alligators contemplating a sign posted on a tree: Big Race Sunday. The guy gator confides to the girl gator (so denoted by a pink bow), I can win, only to be told by a bully gator, No you can't. So begins the boy gator's training regimen swimming, stretching, weight lifting, and running, all of it with his cheerleading friend right by his side. The book focuses on very few words, mostly iterations of Cannot, Can so, and I can do it. And, of course, at the very end: I did it! Easy-on-the-eyes white space surrounds the deceptively simple illustrations constructed from line drawings and a pale wash. With its common themes of self-doubt, confidence, and friendship, this charming book should be a perfect fit for preschoolers, many of whom will get to experience immediate reading success.--Austin, Patricia Copyright 2010 Booklist"
