Book review: 'If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don't!' will tickle and delight young readers

Parents need to know that Elise Parsley's "If Your Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don't!" is a silly picture book that offers readers a warning directly from its young narrator, Magnolia, not to make the mistake she did, which landed her in the principal's office. The art is hilarious and captures not only the mayhem the alligator causes in the classroom when Magnolia brings him in for show-and-tell, but also the changing emotions on the faces of the teachers, students, and toothy green beast as the day goes on. A rollicking read-aloud that's accessible for preschoolers, but kindergartners and grade school kids will more easily relate to the classroom setting and threat of being sent to the principal's office.
