" 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. " 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. " said.

" The characters in Robert Munsch's books are never the wisest, much to comical effect, however the parents in Alligator Baby take cluelessness to new heights. They don't realize they're bringing home animal babies rather a human one? It takes their young daughter to figure it out each time? I mean, would kiddos still laugh their heads off at this repetitive, humorous plot? Sure. But it doesn't have the same flair as say, Stephanie's Ponytail. " 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 " 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." said.

"It has been a long time since I last read this...my children used to love Munsch's silly book. I pulled it out tonight to read to my three year old. I didn't really think this would hold his attention, as he is autistic and I often lose him halfway through the longer picture books. Surprisingly, he listened to the end and even laughed in some appropriate spots. My eleven year old heard me reading this and immediately said, "I remember this - I love this one!." Then he climbed on the bed and the two boys listened together. A nice way to end the weekend. " said.

"Kristen's parents are due to have a baby any minute and when that time comes, they get lost on the way and end up at the zoo! They end up bringing home an alligator baby instead! After the parents go back to the zoo numerous times to retrieve their son and still come back with another animal baby, Kristen volunteers to go bring her brother back.

I normally like Munsch books as they are so funny, but this one didn't strike a chord with me like others have. I absolutely love Stephanie's Ponytail by him!
" said.

"I thought this book was hilarious! After I read it I looked up Robert Munsch and found other similar books that would be great for young children. Vibrant pictures and easy to read text makes these great for ELL and ESE students. The book Alligator Baby is about a young girl who takes it upon herself to find her sibling when her parents accidentally bring home the wrong newborn. Though Kristen realizes that the strange creature who now shares her house is not human, she cannot get her dizzy mother and father to understand their mistake: they picked up their baby at the zoo instead of the hospital. A resourceful Kristen hops on her bicycle and pedals over to the zoo, where she claims the infant from its foster mother, a gorilla." said.
