Crocodiles Need Kisses Too
By Rebecca Colby
Everyone needs hugs and love in this offbeat, upbeat ode to the not-so-cuddly—and yet still sweet and beloved!
Despite their lumpy, bumpy hide,
toothy mouths stretched open wide,
just like me and just like you,
crocodiles need kisses too.
Fun-to-read-aloud, rhyming text describes prickly porcupines, roaring tigers, and slithery snakes—not the most cuddly creatures, but still worthy of hugs and snuggles from their mamas! With a luscious and colorful palette, Crocodiles Need Kisses Too shows that animals (and children) don’t have to be warm and fuzzy to be totally lovable.
