A Crocodile Grows Up
by Amanda Doering Tourville

The Nile crocodile is one of the biggest reptiles on earth. But it starts to grow in a tough, leathery egg that its mother lays. When it comes out of its egg, it is about a foot long. It has around 50 brothers and sisters that hatch, too. How does the mother crocodile take care of her babies? What do the young crocodiles eat?

In A Crocodile Grows Up you will learn the answers to those and may other questions. The answers come in different forms:

the story,
the information boxes on each page,
the realistic illustrations,
the Nile Crocodile diagram,
the map, and
the glossary.
