Arithme-tickle

2005 Award
What Time Is It, Mr. Crocodile?
(Judy Sierra/illus. by Doug Cushman, Harcourt $16 Score:) Mr. Crocodile has great plans for every hour of the day, but his schedule is constantly undone by five silly monkeys. Told in breezy rhyme with illustrations that add to the fun, there's a clock on every page that introduces reading the time on the hour. Younger listeners may like the story, but telling time is beyond them. A better choice for 5 & up.
