This light, bright bouncy story about a rambunctious little alligator in a pink tutu would be a perfect read for anyone introducing a new baby to a slightly older sibling. The text is simple, playful, and fun, brought to life by the stream of energetic, expressive watercolor illustrations. Readers will want to join the boisterous Gwendolyn as she marches around the kitchen or slides down the steps. And they'll feel how hard it is for her when her mother tells her time and again that she must quiet down. The resolution is positive for all, and big sister learns an important lesson about being patient.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
