Alligator at Saw Grass Road is written by Janet Halfmann and illustrated by Lori Anzalone. Alligator at Saw Grass Road is part of the Smithsonian’s Backyard series by Om Books.
I found this storybook app to be very cute and educational. I love books where my kids enjoy the story and learn something at the same time. The story is about the life of a mother alligator and her young. I think my favorite part was when the mother alligator was hunting for food and a turtle snuck into her nest and laid her eggs. The mother alligator didn’t even notice. So while warming her eggs she was also warming the turtle eggs. At the end of the story there is facts about the alligator which my kids and I found very interesting. Before I rush to the end of the book I learned that this mother alligator dug like a den and while the swamp kind of shrinks her den stays deep in the water. She even cleans it out which I found kind of interesting.
The graphics in the story were beautiful. My daughter really was captivated by the graphics in the story. There are three options to the story: Read to Me, Read By Myself, or Auto play. We like the Read to Me option.
This story was reviewed by the Smithsonian Institute for accuracy, Smithsonian Backyard is a series that answers the many questions children have about habitats and the habitats of animals in our own backyards
The age range for this book is age 3 – 8.
