Children will be thrilled to see what these silly crocodiles get up to when they play their favourite games. Another delightful laugh-aloud treat that follows up the popular Crocodiles Say…

“The well thought out poems include essential vocabulary for each sport being plazed, which adds to the value of the book (even if the Crocs get the game wrong). … The colorful, cartoon-like, full-page illustrations of the toothy reptilians add immensely to the overall fun of the book. Recommended.” – CM Magazine


“The crocs get their athletic groove on. As kids use clues found in the rhyming text to guess which sports are being played, they will discover answers that have a funny twist. Strong verbs like “dodge” and “dash” are not only fun to say but heighten the action factor in this reptilian romp through sports. A great companion to 2005’s Crocodiles Say.” – Children’s Book News
