Codrile was hungry, but mammy crocodile had to watch the nest. There was an egg in the nest and inside the egg… a brother. Codrile went off ready to hunt alone, but he was still a little small and he wasn’t used to getting his own food.

 

Children learn almost without being conscious of their own evolution. Codrile, in spite of being little, shows a certain maturity in that he is able to face up to his needs and tries to demonstrate an independent behaviour.


Descripción

Codrile was hungry, but mammy crocodile had to watch the nest. There was an egg in the nest and inside the egg… a brother. Codrile went off ready to hunt alone, but he was still a little small and he wasn’t used to getting his own food.

 

Children learn almost without being conscious of their own evolution. Codrile, in spite of being little, shows a certain maturity in that he is able to face up to his needs and tries to demonstrate an independent behaviour.

The cycle of life, growth and the birth of a brother make us face up to the new demands associated with independence. In a certain way, this situation implies breaking certain family ties.

In any case, the birth of a brother is something beautiful that brings about more advantages than disadvantages. For that, any fear that brings about a conflict is totally dispersed when the elder child understands it does not mean competing for affection.

A simple story musically narrated and recreated in affectionate and colourful illustrations. Images that allow approach, nearness and complicity with the feelings of the main character.
