Food Chains in the Swamp

swamp-chomp Today is a good day to stay away from the alligator in the swamp. He’s a hungry guy… and if you don’t pay attention, you might just end up as lunch. Swamp Chomp is a food-chain romp, filled with lively language as various animals dive and circle and pounce. They slurp and nibble and munch and snap.

Swamp where Gator hidesIf you live in the swamp, you’ll want to pay attention to that carpet of algae where gator hides. This book introduces animals in the swamp food chain through a cumulative story a’la “the house that Jack built” until the very end where we find out just who Gator eats for lunch…

There’s a handful of Beyond the Book activities over at Sally’s Bookshelf.
