Book pick ~ I'd Really Like to Eat a Child

My newest Goodwill book find! This book is adorable! About a tiny alligator named Achilles and his trials with not liking what he has for dinner and always wanting 'to eat a child', this book is very well done. It has very gentle morals about eating your breakfast to grow big and strong, but is mostly for entertainment.

The setting is the Nile River, so adding this book in when reading about ancient Egypt, or even current Egyptian culture, would be a cute and funny break from the more serious social topics.

I am very glad I bought it... we have read it many times already in our bedtime book rotation.
