PreSchool-Grade 1–The crocodile that responds to the title question counts more than 20 ways and reasons for loving its child. Through all seasons and numerous shared activities, the parent enumerates how love stretches from the childs chocolate cheeks to muddy feet. Whether romping through waves or counting stars, the large and small crocodiles obviously enjoy one anothers company. The perky reptiles exude plenty of personality, and the bouncy rhymes are reinforced by McCues brightly colored illustrations. The page layouts, including effective spreads, facilitate group sharing. Because the numbers relate to concepts, not objects, the book doesnt offer much counting practice. However, the overriding theme of parental delight and unconditional love shines through the pages, making the book a solid choice for most collections.–Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
