Finding gold isn’t easy. In fact it’s dangerous and difficult. It requires planning. First, Crocodile and Anna practice their secret-keeping faces. Then Anna lifts Crocodile up, to be sure she’s strong enough to carry gold. Together, they draw the whole world, with an X to mark the spot. Now Anna fetches the boat, and off they sail.

We found this book at the library in the New Book section. I am so glad the library had this book, because it was a lot of fun to read.
This story is about a girl and a crocodile. They want to find some gold. They discuss how to find gold and go through the steps to find it. Like having a map with an X on it. Anna and crocodile go on an adventure to find some gold.
This story is a lot of fun and very entertaining. It held the girls' attention the entire time and made them laugh. I really enjoyed the story as well. My favorite part of How to Find Gold, are the illustrations. The illustrations are so wonderful and lovely. Colorful and eye-catching.
I really enjoyed reading this story with my girls. I recommend giving it a read. I think it will be a great read for elementary school children. Especially if they like books about treasure and adventure!
