Do you know the difference between alligators and crocodiles...?

Alligators and crocodiles are the world's largest reptiles and the closest living relatives of dinosaurs. In this extremely interesting nonfiction picture book, Gibbons compares the two reptiles by giving facts about both--their physical differences, what they eat, where they are found, how fast they swim how they raise their young, and more.

Kids will want to read this book again and again to learn all about these crocodilians that have been around for millions of years. A great read-alound for the interested child or non-fiction resource for older children.

Drawings are labeled throughout with additional information.
Track 1 : narration with page turn signals (20:38)
Track 2: narration with no page turn signals (20:23).

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This addition to Gibbons' extensive shelf of topic books draws young readers into the world of alligators and crocodiles by first asking readers to distinguish between them. She describes the physical similarities and differences between the two most common species of the world's largest reptiles, as well as their habitats, habits, prey, locomotion, senses, communication, mating and nesting behavior, and status as endangered species. The author has chosen facts that will engage her readers, organized the information logically, and presented it in straightforward exposition. Pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations show both species in their likely environment. Labels are plentiful and unfamiliar terms are explained in context. Two maps show where the species can be found around the world and where they coexist in the southern United States. While Gibbons' drawings don't have the fidelity of those of some other nature artists, the plants and animals surrounding these intriguing animals are generally recognizable. Additional factoids and a Web site suggestion for further research complete the package.--Isaacs, Kathleen Copyright 2010 Booklist"
