    1. Using three words per concept--a noun and a verb to form a sentence, followed by another stand-alone verb, Lola Schaefer takes readers to the swamp to observe the food chain. At first all is calm. Fish glide. Guard. Turtles bob. Dig. However, when the gators show up the calm of the swamp changes as we begin to see the relationships between the animals. Crayfish grab. Munch. Bullfrogs pounce. Gulp. Each animal consumes its natural prey and even the gators get a meal. The endnote gives information [...]

    2. This book describes a food chain in a swamp. The author writes about the sounds the fish, turtles, and other swamp creatures make. With three words per page, this would be a good book for early elementary students learning how to read. The pictures are colorful pen and ink drawings that fit the text well. While this would be a good book for talking about ecosystems with young students, the text can be confusing. "Bullfrogs wait. Lay" is an example. I like the two word sentences, but the other do [...]

    3. This is an entertaining and informative book about life in a cypress swamp. The narrative is lyrical and filled with onomatopoeia. There are only a few words on each page and I think this book would work well for a group read. The illustrations are colorful and are very detailed. We paused often to point out the many creatures we discovered on each page (our favorite are the turtles.) The story also shows how the food chain operates within this ecosystem, and in this case, how things come full c [...]

    4. From years of doing storytimes for children of various ages, I gravitate toward picture books with only a few words on each page, like this one. Why? To start with, it's easier for me to read as I hold the book toward my audience. Books with less text are a way to get children to engage more with the illustrations as well. This book would work well for a lesson on the food chaineven for older kids. Great endnote information too!

    5. The swamp is a quiet sultry place but much is happening! Animals flit, swoop,wait quietly all for their lunch. Schaefer uses great descriptive words that really make the swamp alive. The beginning lines, "Water ripples in the swamp," take on new meaning at the end! The food chain has never been so intriguing and vibrant.

    6. This book has an incredible quality of sound that I wouldn't expect from a picture book. The text is incredibly minimal, but there is much to talk about from the illustrations. Great for kids who don't know much about swamps or the animals that reside there. There's also information in the back in case the grownups don't know much either!

    7. This book tells about the many different animals that live in swamps. It looks into what each animal eats, and subtly conveys the food chain in that area. The illustrations were created using "pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic, pencil, and pastel". I could use this book to teach about different ecosystems, and the food chain.

    8. Food chains in the wetlands are explored in rhythmic rhyming text. Pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic, pencil, and pastels were used to render illustrations. The endnote contains a nice visual food chain with an explanation about the concepts covered in text.Great read aloud for PreK-2 that supports STEM.

    9. An enjoyable introduction to some of the animals and insects in the wetland. There is a brief food chain explanation in the back. Would work as a read aloud and the pictures are large enough to be seen from far away.
