The Selfish Crocodile
About this deal
The story is a very pleasant and engaging story since it has colouful pictures and diologues children could say in different voices according to the animal saying it which makes it an interactive book. The moral of the story is that it is not nice to be selfish or mean to anyone and that it is very important to share which is something that children could be taught through this story book. I really enjoyed the story since it is simple yet has a great impact on children by showing through the story how a selfish crocodile changed into a friendly crocodile which is something that can be used when dealing with issues, such as, bullying. He has been regularly published since 1969 but has not confined his talents to the written word.. He is passionate about the culture, myths and folktales of the whole Caribbean area and has worked tirelessly to promote knowledge, interest and understanding amongst ex-patriots and his adopted countrymen alike. Faustin Charles offers an utterance of his own, which promises to push the frontier of West Indian expression in poetry one understanding further on' Kamau Brathwaite.

But a little mouse was brave and went inside the mouth of the crocodile and took out his bad tooth and the crocodile was no longer in pain. The crocodile realised how mean he was being to all the animals and felt bad so he decided to become friends with all the animals.
