What to Expect When You're Expecting Hatchlings by Bridget Héos with illustrations by Stéphane Jorisch
After previously reading about kangaroo parents and parents of larvae, I knew that I was in for a treat with What to Expect When You're Expecting Hatchlings. Baby alligators and crocodiles weren't something I'd ever given a lot of though about before, so I had a lot to learn. This third book has the same tongue-in-cheek humour of the other two, and the illustrations seem zany and down-to-earth at the same time (they have a healthy streak of realism mixed with a large dose of anthropomorphism). This book is a great fit for classrooms, school/public libraries, and the personal shelves of kids who have a curiosity about the natural world.
