Crocodile smile : 10 songs of the Earth as the animals see it

Author: Sarah Weeks; Lois Ehlert
Publisher: New York : HarperCollinsPublishers, 2003.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Juvenile audience : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The lyrics for each of the 10 songs are printed in the book along with a portrait of the featured animal, creating a gallery effect. Although the songs could be read aloud suggest look and listen. Although the tunes would be difficult for children to sing aloud, Weeks' lilting voice on the CD that accompanies the book may inspire them to try.
