Sharing is caring!

Crocodile books were always fun for me as a child. In fact I loved the Roald Dahl story The Enormous Crocodile when I was a child and today I am sharing 10 fantastic Crocodile and Alligator books to read with kids. 

I remember singing the song, “Never smile at a crocodile” when I was younger. It was one of my favourite songs. I really hope you find this list of Crocodile and Alligator books useful.

Teaching Kids About Crocodiles

Teaching kids about the crocodile is a great way to introduce little ones to reptiles. You might like to read a crocodile story with the kids at home or during mat time and then extend kids interest in reptiles through a crocodile action song or a crocodile themed craft.

We have a few fun alligator or crocodile crafts here on The Inspiration Edit which I am sure you will find fun. These are great ideas to go along with reading and can help promote literacy and art for preschoolers.

Have fun and enjoy this list!
