If You Cry Like a Fountain
By Noemi Vola
Who knew tears could be so useful. Crocodile tries to help a sad looking Worm. However, instead Crocodile only made matters worse and that’s when sad little Worm began to cry. Crocodile now must try to get sad Worm to stop. So, Crocodile starts by showing Worm all the things that cry, and the good things come from those that cry. Crocodile also shows Worm if certain things don’t cry then disaster is a possibility such as the black cloud. If Black Cloud didn’t cry, the farmers would be very upset or if you cry long enough at lunch, you could fill a pot of water. Ages: 3-7 Published by: Tundra Books. Pages: 48. Price: $24.99 HC
