    1. This story takes place near a river, where a very hungry crocodile dwells One day, the crocodile sees a very juicy and fat hen walking, and prepares to eat it However, as he is about to charge, the hen makes a very surprising remark She calls the crocodile my brother , and shows no fear After hearing this, the crocodile becomes very confused and could not bring himself to eat the hen This happens repeatedly throughout the story, and the crocodile questions it and Then at the end of the story, [...]


    2. Every decision made in changing the original was a bad one The original is in landscape format, allowing for glorious two page spreads of the crocodile these were so effective The original was forced to use limited colors, necessitating the illustrator to create subtle textures for hen s feathers and crocodile s scales The slight alterations of the text are of the dumb PC variety How can I be her brother becomes How can I be her brother How can she be my sister The original illustrations do not [...]


    3. This lighthearted tale of a smart hen who convinces a crocodile not to eat her, will delight readers The hen repetitively says a phrase to the crocodile that makes him hesitant to eat her He then goes to ask a friend what the hen s words mean Eventually, the crocodile and the hen become friends when the crocodile realizes that they have things in common The words and illustrations in this story go very well together The illustrations feature friendly looking animals appropriate for any children [...]


    4. This African folktale shows how using your brain can work to your benefit The hen was saved from being eaten on several occasions due to her well thought out tactics with the crocodile They are similar, in a very small way, yet enough for the crocodile to see the brother relationship and not eat her Kids would find the hen to be resourceful and cunning while learning about the animals and their habitats.


    5. I like the pictures and the basic message of the book As with many folktales, there is repetition But the repetition in this book has so little variety that one wonders if there was an error I m not sure if that is the way folktales from Bankongo are, or if that is just how the translator decided to do it Even so, it is a fun tale and the pictures do help break up the monotony The best part of the book is seeing a crocodile shrug.


    6. Each time Crocodile tries to eat Hen, Hen calmly says, My brother, don t eat me, and looks away Crocodile knows he CAN eat hen, but if they are brother and sister, SHOULD he This folktale from The Republic of the Congo is a gentle humorous animal tale in the repeating style of many folktales, and is perfect for beginning readers I appreciate the author s note honoring the tale s origins.


    7. This book is a good easy to read book for younger students The students would be able to read this by themselves and be able to understand it very easily This book talks about a crocodile and a hen and how the crocodile wanted to eat the hen but the hen said they were brothers At the end of the story the two became friends and the crocodile no longer wanted to eat the hen.


    8. Based on a folktale from the Bakongo people of the Republic of the Congo, this book is An I Can Read Book for beginner readers Cartoon like drawings, repetitious text, and a humorous story make this book appealing to young children.


    9. Hen convinces Crocodile not to eat her by calling him brother Crocodile is confused because he and Hen have nothing in common Then he talks to Lizard who reminds him that they all lay eggs and therefore are all brothers and sisters.


    10. This story has a great moral It teaches students about differences and similarities Although it is irresponsible in representing the human species with varying animal species, it still has the moral of inclusion that s valuable for kids to learn at a young age.


    11. What a cute story that illustrates even though we are different, we are still family Great moral and fun characters the kids will connect with.


    12. A lovely, well thought out presentation Unfortunately, the I Can Read edition has none of its good qualities.
