There are lots of interesting facts about crocodiles. Baby crocs make kitten noises, and some crocs lure birds in by putting sticks over their noses. The Truth about Crocodiles introduces readers to these facts and so much more as three crocs with personality travel through the illustrations, demonstrating their skills and unique traits. Each section provides a unique perspective. For example, on one page a little girl plans a birthday party with hatchlings to share information about crocs’ life cycles. Even a lizard and a turtle chime in along the way with a fact about their crocodilian cousins.
