    1. Caroline is not happy to have a baby brother. Her mother adores him despite his dribbling mouth. She talks all of the time about his yellow eyes and green skin and how very cute he is. When her mother goes into town to exchange her hat for one that is just right, Caroline gets an idea and heads to the baby store to trade her baby brother in for one that is just right too. The baby panda with yellow eyes like her mother likes eats the bamboo furniture. The baby elephant is too squirty and ends up [...]


    2. When Mam Crocodile takes her hat back to the hat shop to "swap it for one that is just right," jealous big sister Caroline is inspired to take her (smelly, boring, and dribbling) baby brother back to the baby shop. Predictable, but cute.



    3. If there's such a thing as perfection, this is surely a perfect picture book. Perfectly pitched text, relevant to pre-school up to well you could say any age, but realistically upper primary. The illustrations are elegant and funny and assured and just perfect. This would have been an all time favourite for me when I was 6 if it had only existed.(I remember being about 7 and my mum said 'your daughter has such beautiful skin' to a friend's mum. I went green all over ha ha ha!)


    4. Aww, wat een schattig leuk boekje was dit! Het is een onderwerp wat wel vaker voorbij komt, maar toch blijft het leuk. Ik had veel plezier om te zien wat voor broertjes Kaatje kreeg en hoe het ging met het testen of het een goed broertje zou zijn. :P Het einde was superlief. Ik vond het ook leuk om alle kleine details te zien (zoals de kentekenplaten, die keer in de speelgoedwinkel en wat daar gebeurde). Mooie illustraties!


    5. I loved this! Just adorable and great for older siblings feeling less than enthusiastic about their new baby brother or sister.


    6. Perfect for kid who have sibling(s). A story about a jealous big sister who wanted to swap her brother with other babies. But in the end she find that her baby brother is just right.


    7. When big sister is left in charge of baby brother of whom she is not too fond, she discovers the baby shop and proceeds to trade her brother for one baby animal after another. After problems with each of these alternatives, sister crocodile trades back for her own brother. A fun story that many older siblings may identify with and get a giggle from. Retro-looking illustrations accompany this tale. The illustrations are brightly colored and depict a sunny, happy town bustling with many types of a [...]


    8. The late Jan Ormerod, beloved, award-winning children's picture book author/illustrator and illustrator, Andrew Joyner, capture the essence perfectly of a sibling's new baby envy.Caroline Crocodile is jealous of the attention her baby brother is getting from Mama Crocodile and she wants in on the action. When she is left in charge of caring for her dribbling baby brother, she swaps him at the baby store for a different baby. The new baby is finicky though so she trades that one tooE BABY SWAP is [...]


    9. Caroline Crocodile isn't thrilled about her new baby brother. He's dribbly and smelly, and worst of all, he takes up lots of Momma's love and time. So Caroline decides to swap him for a different baby at the store. However, after trying out a few other baby animals, Caroline decides maybe her little brother isn't so bad after all.The facial expressions and comic situations in this are fantastically illustrated. It's quite humorous. I love how Caroline's plans to swap for a different baby animal [...]


    10. A book about sibling rivalry and the feeling of being displaced by a baby brother. Caroline tries to get rid of her baby brother for other animal babies and finds out her brother is the best. I found the first page very disorienting and confusing. It looked like Richard Scarry's Busy World, making it difficult to pinpoint who was talking and which characters were the focus. If you use this for a read aloud, you might want to explore the page before you start reading so that your students can foc [...]


    11. Popularity/appeal rating: 3Quality rating: 2.5In a one-sentence nutshell:The illustrations are eye-catching - bright and cheerful - but I've seen the same version of this story a million times over. Arthur and I were both confused that the "Baby Store" actually sold babies (and not baby supplies), but in a world where alligators wear hats and walk around on two feet, I guess anything is possible. Not impressed!


    12. This is a great book for anyone who's dealing with a child having jealousy issues with a new baby brother or sister in the family. The little girl crocodile is jealous because mommy shows her new baby brother so much love. When they go with mom to run errands she sees an opportunity to change her smelly, dribbling brother at the Baby Store. This is a cute and readable book about the reasons one should always keep one's sibling.


    13. Candice's new baby brother gets all the attention. Her mother gushes over her baby brother's sharp little claws, yellow eyes, and scaly snout! Candice is not as enamored with her baby brother and her mother is. When her mother takes the family on a shopping trip to swap hats, Candice gets a brilliant idea. What if she can swap her baby brother for a better model. This is a great story about the introduction of a new sibling into the family.


    14. Super cute book about a big sister who's not sure she likes her new baby brother. Caroline Crocodile is jealous of her little brother and the attention he gets from their mother. So when she has to watch him while their mother is shopping, Caroline decides to trade him in for a new baby brother. She tries out a panda (too fussy), an elephant (too squirty), and twin tigers (too tiring). In the end, she decides that her brother isn't so bad after all.


    15. New baby siblings are sometimes a drag. Perhaps some other sort of baby might do better?Sibling hate is a familiar picture book trope, but really, watching a kid test-driving a whole slew of different kinds of (animal) babies is a hoot. Andrew Joyner's art really sells it: he manages to remind one of Bernard Waber's Lyle books and the style of children's books of the seventies without feeling slavish; it's just a knowing nod.Library copy


    16. While mom goes shopping, Caroline does a little shopping of her own. She comes to the conclusion that a baby who is too squirty or too tiring or all the other things about the babies traded at the Baby Shop are not worth the trade - her little brother is just the kind of baby she can live with!Curiously enough, the monkeys in this book look like George. Great art!


    17. Caroline is jealous of her new baby brother, so she tries to swap him for a better fit. This picturebook is lively and colorful with a veritable zoo of characters. It is just the right length and the illustrator clearly had fun illustrating this world. This book is best for siblings and families with new babies.


    18. Caroline Crocodile is definitely jealous of her baby brother, but it’s more than that. He’s smelly, dribbly and just not right. On a shopping trip, she decides that she should try to exchange him for a new baby at the baby store. Big siblings will laugh at the trouble each new baby causes, and the conclusion hits a perfect note as her own baby brother might be the best one after all.


    19. A older sister crocodile is less than enchanted with her new baby brother. So when her mother goes to the hat store to exchange a hat, she takes him to the baby store to get a new baby. After a variety of hijinks with other animals, she decides that her brother actually was the best baby to begin with.Great illustrations.


    20. I really enjoyed this however the detailed illustrations were much too distracting for storytime! Reading one-on-one with a child would be great for this book as there are lots of things to notice in the pictures.


    21. A new favourite. Text is perfectly written; concise, exacting with a follow on storyline. The illustrations are delightful and not only support the text but enhances it with additional action. Lots to enjoy!!


    22. This fun book is about a little girl crocodile who is jealous of her baby brother crocodile as he appears to be her mum's favourite. Hence she attempts to swap him for a better babay. I enjoyed this book, the pictures are wonderful and the story in entertaining.


    23. Funny illustrations tell the story of a young crocodile who wants to swap her brother for a different baby animal. Veg*n families note: The crocodile family eats fish and frogs, with are illustrated as dead whole animals with X's on their eyes.



    24. Charming. Delightful illustrations. Mother croc in a hat and her expressions of mushy love for her baby crocs are great. 'Such lovely claws!'




    25. I'd buy this for the illustrations alone. Such awesome detail. And the story is beautifully told. A wonderful partnership.
