Book Description:

It's Gator's first day at his new office job, and he is surrounded by quirky personalities like the slow slug, the obedient dog, the aggressive hawk, and the chatty chicken. He is eager to fit in with his new co-workers, so he tries to be like them. But acting like everyone else doesn't work out for him, and he learns a valuable lesson about himself instead. Featuring hand-drawn illustrations, vibrant colors, and rhymes, Animals at the Office sparks dialogue regarding first-day jitters, fitting in with new crowds, and embracing one's own special traits despite being surrounded by others who are different. Adults may relate to the featured characters based on their own experiences at an office and can use the book to talk more with children about their own job and what going to work means for them.

My Review
Animals at the Office is an adorable children's book that follows an alligator on his first day at a new office job. He meets his co-workers and tries to fit in with them by acting like them, but soon discovers it's not quite working out. Alligator is ready to call it quits, thinking he's not cut out for his new job. Until he talks to his boss. 
I really enjoyed this story. I read it with my son, and while he only really cared about the animals in the illustrations, I thought the story itself was really great. And I could relate to Alligator in terms of having first-day jitters when it comes to a new job and being around new people.
I also think the book teaches kids a valuable lesson--that it's okay to just be yourself. Don't try to be like someone else just to fit in. Everyone is different and has their own strengths. Play into those. Be who you are. That's all. 
With an easy to read rhyme scheme and fun, colorful illustrations, Animals at the Office is a must have for younger readers.
5 stars!
