What does little crocodile say?

The alarm clock goes dringg dringg, mama’s tickle goes hee hee, the water goes sssplash, the car goes vroom vroom… So starts little crocodile’s morning on the first day of nursery school. But when the doorbell goes ding dong and teacher elephant says peekaboo, little crocodile starts having second thoughts and has something very loud to say.


With its delightful sounds and loveable cast of characters, this heart-warming story about a very important day in a youngster’s life speaks to a child’s (and parent’s) separation anxiety and to the joy of overcoming it.
