Synopsis

Croc Gets a Shock by Mairi Mackinnon

Croc is late for everything, even her own birthday party. She misses the bus, she can't buy new shoes because the store is closed for lunch, and what's worse, she has the hiccups. A surprise birthday present may be just what she needs. Simple, phonically repetitive text is a great way to develop essential language and early reading skills, and guidance notes are included to give parents confidence as they help their child learn to read.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
