Description
Croc and Ally are two best friends who don't always see things the same way, but there's one thing they do agree on—their friendship comes first! In this story designed to engage early readers, charming characters combine with simple text, lively illustrations, and laugh-out-loud humor to help boost kids' confidence and create lifelong readers!
Croc is grumpy. Ally is happy. Croc sees a problem. Ally finds a solution. In The Best in the World, Ally asks Croc to help him remove his spots. After that, Ally gets ready for anything that could possibly happen that day with several silly protective measures. Finally, Croc helps Ally figure out what he is the best at being.
With three short stories, easy-to-read vocabulary, and adorable illustrations, this book is perfect for progressing readers. Exciting, easy-to-read books are the stepping stone a young reader needs to bridge the gap between being a beginner and being fluent.

        July 22, 2022

        K-Gr 2-Croc and Ally are back in two new additions to Anderson's growing early reader series. Ally the alligator is kind but clueless, which classically plays against Croc the crocodile's somewhat gruff yet accepting demeanor. Each book is comprised of three chapters, with each one running roughly 10 pages and ending with a simple punch line. In The Best in the World, Ally tries to brush the spots off his body, but just ends up drawing spots on Croc so they match. In A Lot to Like!, Ally uses a sock puppet version of Croc to get a more desired outcome. The format forgoes the pseudo-comic-book style of many modern easy readers, though the focus on humor and character certainly do check that box. Word choice is often simple and repeating, while harder words will be easy to sound out for most readers. Simple, colorful illustrations capture the characters well, with varied facial expressions and movement further adding to the humor. VERDICT Recommended for larger collections.-Peter Blenski
