ARC Review - Little Croc's Purse by Lizzie Finlay

Amazon Product Description:

When Little Croc finds a purse full of money, he and his friends have all sorts of ideas about what they could spend it on. Should Little Croc keep the money for himself, or try to find the owner? When he decides to return the purse, Little Croc learns important lessons about sharing, saving, and spending. Lizzie Finlay pairs charming and humorous illustrations with this light-hearted tale that will have readers rooting for the resolute Little Croc as he overcomes pressure and does what he knows is right.

This is a delightful story about doing the right thing.  Finlay does an excellent job of communicating about sharing, saving, and spending without lecturing.  The illustrations are colorful and will appeal to young children.
A must for an collection on character education.

Recommended for Pre-school to 2nd grade.

Mrs. Archer's rating: 5 o 5
