Rhoda the Alligator

Level One I Can Read book. Rhoda the Alligator is the debut read-out-loud children’s book by former U.S. Senator (Florida) Bob Graham. The book tells the story of Rhoda, a uniquely colored alligator who is trying to find her place in the wild world of the Florida Everglades National Park. Filled with beautiful illustrations, Rhoda the Alligator teaches pre-school and kindergarten children about the beauty of our differences and the hurt that bullying can inflict.

Teach your 4-6 year-old the importance of diversity and the environment. Rhoda is born with a distinct color unlike any other alligator in the Everglades. She is blue and orange, shining with colors. Rhoda’s parents celebrate her brightness. However, when Rhoda meets the other young gators in the Everglades she is bullied because of her appearance. Using powerful lessons from her environment, Rhoda is able to overcome the hurt and hardship, embrace her true colors, and educate and transform her bullies.
