    2. Ages 5 8.This is the story of Lyle the Crocodile, who lives in a bathtub in the house on East 88th Street He is very polite, does tricks, and helps with housework Every home should have such a helpful crocodile This is a sweet classic, published in 1962 As such, it has interesting historical aspects to it that we don t have any milk is delivered in glass bottles, you must talk to the operator before making a telephone call, and the primary method of communication is via letter The illustrations [...]

    3. The House on East 88th street is really a story about Lyle the crocodile Nothing too fancy here, a typical story I could have come up with and so slightly disappointing A new family moves into a house and finds a croc in their bathtub He does tricks for him and so they fall in love with him and decide to keep him Unbeknownst to them, he has a previous owner who is on his way back to retrieve him Nothing too exciting and the pictures were all in the same color tones, and so banal, it was even not [...]

    4. After a lifetime of enjoying Lyle, Lyle Crocodile books, I stumbled across this unknown to me Lyle book in the library It was so much fun to read the story of how Lyle and the Primms first met Overall, the book is just as engaging and fun as the others in the series.

    5. A family bought a house and while moving in they discovered an alligator in the bathtub That alligator entertained them with the hope that they will let him stay.

    6. Another classic I missed in my own childhood Then I overcompensated and ending up getting two copies for the girls I know, crazy book behavior Anyway, I kinda liked it There s something weirdly appealing about these mid century early readers The art has a strong period feel And the plot is a little trippy There were a lot of books about kids having weird non animal like animal pals back then Danny and the Dinosaur, Sammy the Seal, The Cat in the Hat, and no doubt many .Anyway, it s fun to read i [...]

    7. Why, why, WHY do I love Lyle Crocodile so much I had Lyle Lyle Crococdile as a child and my childhood book is the one my kids have and so when I found The House on East 88th Street at a yard sale or book sale or something, I pounced on it as much for myself as for my kids This is the book that tells of how Lyle came to live with the Primms It s totally dated and 70s and I LOVE IT There s an element of offbeat humor that cracks me up I think Bernard Waber had a dry sense of humor Maybe if I hadn [...]

    8. I really loved this book about this crocodile It was such a sweet book about a family who didn t think they needed anything else until they were handed something special It made me think about maybe we are suppose to look at the crocodile and think about a child Maybe at first you don t think you need anything else in your family and than bam all you ve never knew you wanted is right there Love is a powerful thing and this book encompasses that.

    9. This book ties with Sunday Morning as my favorite book from my childhood I remember reading being read to about Lyle the Crocodile and absolutely falling in love with the story, the family, and Lyle himself I ve laughed at the activities Lyle gets into and cried when he either gets in trouble or bad things happen to him I also remember there being an animated movie about Lyle and I would watch that endlessly Definitely a book I want to revisit

    10. 3.75 StarsFrom the Author would brought us the awesomeness of Ira Sleeps Over we have this book.There is something about this book that I love even though I don t love the pictures they work I just don t love and the story is funbut.I have a deep rooted love for Lyle, I don t know why I think everyone should have a crocodile in their house that cooks, cleans, makes his bed does tricks etc.Lylewhat a cool crocodile

    11. How did I not know about this book until just recently The things you find on the shelf after a library renovation and possibly remains to be the only good thing about it I instantly loved Lyle when I turned the page and there he was looking out from the upstairs bath with HUGE friendly eyes I loved him even when I heard of his peculiar and rather fancy diet of exclusively Turkish caviar.

    12. I just read the obituary for author Waber but the delights of his classic live on This was one of the major books of my just starting school years the tale of the crocodile found in the bathtub Lyle, for those poor souls who haven t been introduced fully earns a place right beside Where the Wild Things Are.

    13. I had no idea there was a book before Lyle, Lyle Crocodile What a cute story and a sweet beginning to a favorite crocodile Probably the cutest one I ve ever seen drawn aside from the Want to eat a child crocodile.Could work in a storytime if the crowd can sit still for a slightly longer book.

    14. A family moves into the house on 88th Street only to discover a crocodile in the bathtub After their initial alarm, they discover Lyle the crocodile can do tricks He becomes part of the family and eventually famous His real owner comes for him, but returns Lyle when he doesn t perform well for him.

    15. I have enjoyed the Lyle the Crocodile books twice in my childhood and when I read them aloud to my children Since I had an older brother named Lyle, and knew no one else by that name, when I was young I believed these books were named after him and that made them especially endearing to me.

    16. Lyle is found in the Primm s bathtub and finds a home amongst the house on 88th street Hector P Valenti leaves a note telling about Lyle Mrs.Primm teaches Lyle to break his Turkish Caviler habit and Lyle happily lives with the Primms.

    17. a beautiful story about a crocidile who has a finely tuned palate and a very extraordinary life I enjoyed it as a child because of the ornate details, and how the illustrations capture New York City.

    18. This was such a great book I heard of Bernard Waber through an exhibit at the National Museum of American Jewish History and I m glad I went Waber was a great writer and makes the characters come alive This book also teaches great lessons in civility, love, and what family really is.

    19. The first in the series in which we meet Lyle the Crocodile Bring the Turkish Caviar and celebrate a classic in children s literature picture books.

    20. What joy to reacquaint myself with Lyle the Crocodile It s a perfect escape to a world where love and kindness exists even in a crocodile For kids of all ages 1 100

    21. I read this book with 1st grade as the first book of a Lyle, Lyle Crocodile unit suggested by Caroline The kids liked the book and were very into Lyle.
