Atale for explaining difference to children, both engaging and challenging Ivan is a very special six-year-old. There is something about the way he looks and moves that sets him apart from the others in his class. Ivan knows that he is different, and what s more, he knows why. Inside, he is a crocodile. Ivan is a friendly crocodile who would love to be one of the gang, but the others don t understand his crocodile ways. They taunt him and tease him, making him feel very much alone. By the end of Ivan s story we take comfort in the fact that this young crocodile has found a way of feeling less alone as he takes his place in class with all the others. The book ends with a publisher's note to parents with suggested discussion questions."
