Crocodiles Don’t Brush Their Teeth (鳄鱼不刷牙)by Colin Fancy


A bilingual picture book with vibrant illustrations, this book explores the differences between human and animal behaviours. Its repetitive (and predictable) text can be a hit with young children and I like that it reinforces positive behaviour such as good manners, brushing teeth, washing hair and so on.

When I first read this book to Theo, I made it a point to frown and sound disapprovingly that the crocodile doesn’t brush its teeth. In contrast, I sounded really proud and happy when I read the child’s line “But I do!”

It is a fun book to read aloud and gets little readers involved too, so there is nothing I would not like about it.
