" This book is amusing; more so, in fact, than most of Robert Munsch's books, I would say. The story is unbelievable, of course (as are almost all of Robert Munsch's volumes), but this factor must be taken into consideration when one reads this book. " Josiah said.
" Book about a family who just had a new baby. They can't seem to figure out who their baby is though. They keep coming home from the zoo with different animal babies. Finally the big sister has to save the day. Not much to this book other than it being fun. Could be fun to try to figure out the different animals before it is announced with kids. " Melissa Housholder said.
" "Alligator Baby" humorously illustrates the story of a family coming home with a new baby...except the real baby is at the zoo! Kristen's parents cycle through many different animal babies before Kristen goes to the zoo to retrieve her real baby brother. This book could be fun for a child that is about to become a new sibling, or any child, really. It very funny, and definitely a good read. " Julie Gerrish said.
" Alligator Baby was another book I very much enjoyed when I was younger. Robert Munsch has very good books that I still remember reading. Alligator Baby is about a family that happens to find out that they brought home an alligator baby. The big brother couldn't believe it. In the end, the big brother met his human sibling, after they took the alligator baby to the zoo. " Christie Tulloch said.
" This is a really funny story. Kristen’s parents end up having their baby at the zoo and accidentally take home the wrong baby; you think they would notice it looks like an alligator. They figure out it’s the wrong baby after the alligator baby bites them all on the nose. They go back to the zoo and come home with yet another wrong baby. (Seriously what’s wrong with these parents?) Kristen is forced to take matters in her own hands and she goes off to the zoo to collect her baby brother. " Slayermel said.
" I really love this book it is very funny and have bright colors. The faces of the animal and the people went they see they have the wrong babie. The best part is that I can make different voices for each animal and my kids love it. Sometimes I ask them to help with the story and they are the one making the voices for the animals.Extension: Make a matching game with pictures of babies and their mothers.Have the kids find what baby belongs to what mother. " Luz said.
" By Robert Munsch author of Love You Forever (one of my all time favorite books). Illustrated in watercolors by Michael Martchenko. This should lead to a fun read and a fun discussion about babies.Age Range: 4 - 8 years " Jack said.
"I think this may be one of those books that adults just don't "get." Robert Munsch has such a tremendous gift for storytelling and his books tend to avoid blanket morals; they don't talk down to kids. A lot of books have humour that is hilarious to adults but that kids won't necessarily "get." I feel like Robert Munsch is writing for the kids not the parents or teachers. Most of his books read well to a group. However, they need to be read to older groups rather than younger. The majority of his books are too long for children under 3 or 4." Kate said.
