Opinion

From Library Staff

I don't like watermelons, but I like this book. As a kid, I heard stories about what would happen if you swallowed a watermelon seed. Turns out Crocodile has heard the same stories. As a kid I also remember saying, "I'll never do that again." I guess Crocodile is the kid in all of us.

This book really catched my little ones attention. She loved it so much that she memorised what was written on each page even if she doesn't know how to read. Short sentences made it easy to read to a 3 years old.

Little ones love this read. Anytime you work a belch into storytime is a win.

This book is great for story time, especially if you read it with a lot of expression! The kids really get into it and can't stop giggling!

Cute story.

This hilarious picture book has a vintage feel with a touch of modern gross-out humor. The almost-3-year-old in my house has requested it nightly.

Can you imagine what happens if you swallow a watermelon seed? Let’s just say the result could be hilarious!

Short sentences and accessible words helped to earn The Watermelon Seed the 2014 Geisel Award—named after Dr. Seuss—for best beginning reader book. His screenprinted illustrations and fantastic use of only green, pink, black, and white give the book a vintage feel, as if it was published long ago.

A 2014 American Library Association, Theodor Geisel Award winner. "Have you ever swallowed a seed?" Do you love watermelon? Bite into this great read.

Cute story, would be great for a read aloud. I'm sure we have all swallowed a seed or two in our time.
