Title: Croc Capers (Bindi Wildlife Adventures, Book 7)
Author: Bindi Irwin and Chris Kunz
Page Count: 112 pages
Grade Reading Level: Ages 7 and up
Summary: Bindi and Robert Irwin are visiting one of their favorite places in the world when their idyllic location and crocodile captures is interrupted by some noisy new neighbors.
Why I started this book:
I was offered the book by the publisher and it sounded cute.
- Bindi, one of the authors (and the heroine!) is a young girl, age 13. Woo! Have you seen her on the Discovery Channel?
- Crocodile-tagging adventures are cool. I can’t imagine wrestling one can you? Yikes!
- The fact sheets at the end of the story are great for sharing fun tidbits about the animals.
- The great bowerbird event was pretty neat. Not everything is as it seems! Good lesson to remember!
- The book could do better to quickly share who is who for those who haven’t been in Bindi’s world before this, but it is relatively minor.
