Crocodiles Need Kisses Too Picture Book
Brand Penguin Random House
Everyone needs hugs and love in this offbeat, upbeat ode to the not-so-cuddly–and yet still sweet and beloved!
Despite their lumpy, bumpy hide,
toothy mouths stretched open wide,
just like me and just like you,
crocodiles need kisses too.
Fun-to-read-aloud, rhyming text describes prickly porcupines, roaring tigers, and slithery snakes–not the most cuddly creatures, but still worthy of hugs and snuggles from their mamas! With a luscious and colorful palette, Crocodiles Need Kisses Too shows that animals (and children) don’t have to be warm and fuzzy to be totally lovable.

“Dullaghan’s acrylic art is adorable, with jungle, snowy, or underwater backgrounds in calming greens and blues while said animals cuddle up together (even the tarantulas are cute with their tiny smiles). The kind, unpretentious moral speaks for itself: “Despite our looks and what we do, we all need love . . . and I love you!”” –BCCB
“This charming picture book suggests that every living creature, no matter the species, needs to feel accepted. A great addition.” –School Library Journal
