Crictor (Reading Rainbow Books) Reviews
I bought this delightful book after an online homeschooling friend recommended it. She posted that her kids adored it and I took a chance and ordered a copy. That was years ago and every one of my kids has loved it ever since. It's old fashioned but sweet, just short enough to read as one of the bedtime stack but long enough to tell a cute story. My little ones love it.
My niece was having difficulty sounding out words. I began tutoring her a few months ago and had to start with basic sounds for letters because her teacher was not providing that instruction for her. I ordered Crictor as a means of reviewing sounds and rhyming words. She absolutely loves this book and has done exceptionally well in learning the sounds, sounding out the words, and remembering the words the next time they are encountered. Three thumbs up for Crictor the boa constrictor!
This was my wife’s all-time favorite book growing up and she is now in her 50’s!
Do you ever like a book 'just because'? I can't make a comment on the witty prose or beautiful artwork to back up my heartfelt, "I like it" but I will try. It is an endearing tale about a snake. The storyline is nonsensical and fun--totally entertaining. The pen and ink drawings with lots of green coloring like the beloved title character are a perfect compliment to the story.
Um classic book you guys. I love this story, and I read this as a kid so I had to get it for my kiddo. It's a silly idea of a snake as a pet and the story is so cute with a very happy ending.
I came across this book years ago in a bookstore in the foreign language section of children's books. (It was in German and I was studying German.) I have since bought countless copies whenever and wherever I came across them to give to friends' children. I'm now grandmother-aged, but it's still one of my favorite books (in either language). The illustrations are so clever and the story is sweet.
My favorite childhood book. I am 56 and my old hardcover book is falling apart. I was so happy to see that you had this and bought a copy for all my grandkids families. The author writes so cleverly!
This book was in excellent condition and replaced a much read and loved classroom book. This story ignites young imaginations as kids observe the loving care Mom gives a unique gift from her son. After reading this book, children enthusiastically embrace writing their own stories telling and illustrating how their mom will care for a pet they send home. I am glad to have a nice copy of this book for my class to share.
