The Crocodile Who Didn't Like Water

This story is about a crocodile who doesn’t fit in. A few pictures at the beginning of the story give a clue that he might be a bit different – notice how the dad in the video draws his daughter’s attention to this subtle hint before they start.

Using silly voices and changing the tone of your voice as you read is a great way to engage children with a story. The dad in this video uses lots of expression and adds his own words like ‘oh no!’ and ‘donk!’ to help to describe what’s happening on the page. This helps children to have a better understanding of the story and develop empathy with the characters in the book.
