Book Overview

A silly story with bright, engaging illustrations and expressive, rhyming text that children will want to read--and giggle through--again and again.

A departing tortoise has his bags packed and is almost ready to set out on an adventure, but he can't leave until he says good-bye to each of his animal friends. The tortoise stops for every last timid mouse and bumblebee, shouting his rhyming good-byes, making you wonder if, perhaps, he's stalling the start of his trip.

His animal friends appear startled as he suddenly pops up on each page to say adieu--especially the perplexed rhinoceros the tortoise mistakes for a unicorn With each farewell, the tortoise's good-byes get sillier and more creative. When will the good-byes end and the adventure begin?

   Book cover came ripped in 3 places! Actual story great!
I like the story. Someone ripped the cover in three places. I like to take good care of my children's books, and that is why it is a bummer.

   Great illustrations, fun wording- not stoked about the story
The book is easy to read and my kids love the silly rhymes on the pages. The illustrations are fun and the wording is good. The story takes place at a zoo, why not in the wild? It is sad that it is about a turtle who is trying to leave the zoo but is unable to because the gates are locked at night. I am transferring this book to the back of the kids library because I wanted to love it.

   Cute Bedtime Read
I grabbed this book when it came across my dash because my son adores alligators. Even though we've read it hundreds of times, he laughs along with every page. It's the perfect bed time story, and we always come back to it again and again.

   Se You Later Alligator
A good children's story. It is easy to read. As they learn to love reading, pictures that capture the imagination help with learning clues. That is what a children's book was created for, to inspire young minds to pick it up. Continue reading until it is done. They read it again and again. I can't tell a story with my creative voice to your child, grandchild, sibling, student or young friend. I believe you have one in your own vocal box. For the first time, read it for yourself. Don't worry, you can get frenetic! In the 1960's, this sory was loved by me and I've seen it loved by many children over the years. I hope you love it as much as I do!

   Fun, cute ways to say goodbye 👋
There are lots of ways to say goodbye in this cute story. I wish I had this when my kids were young as we used to say goodbye in many different languages and fun ways as their dad left for work.

   Extra special for our family
This book is very good. Well illustrated and written From 18 months until 42 months we had custody of our niece. She was the baby of our family. She moved to live with her dad this year and we had a See ya later alligator. We read the book to everyone and people were able to sign the book for her. It has a special meaning for us.

   I read this to a graduating kindergarten class.
I ordered this book for my son's kindergarten class to read on the last day. Some children were going to public school while others were going to a private school. The book was perfect for the themes of moving on and having an adventure, because the school was moving to a new location. It did not create a sad mood. Since the book's end is ambiguous, there was discussion about whether to move on or cling to the familiar. I was pleased with the purchase.
