Description

Do you know the difference between alligators and crocodiles...?

Alligators and crocodiles are the world's largest reptiles and the closest living relatives of dinosaurs. In this extremely interesting nonfiction picture book, Gibbons compares the two reptiles by giving facts about both--their physical differences, what they eat, where they are found, how fast they swim how they raise their young, and more.

Kids will want to read this book again and again to learn all about these crocodilians that have been around for millions of years. A great read-alound for the interested child or non-fiction resource for older children.

Drawings are labeled throughout with additional information.
