A Girl and Her Gator


Oatland is sporting new alligators.  Two little bitties, only months old. They are so small and fragile, they feel more like salamanders and not the ferocious reptiles they grow up to be.  We learned all about alligators last week–about their behavior of sunning, the power of their scutes, and the mighty crushing power of their jaws.

We read A Girl and Her Gator by Sean Bryan.

How stylish would you look if you could wear a gator up there?  Well check out these little tots and see for yourself:
