Swamp Chomp by Lola Schaefer-ADVISABLE

Schaefer, Lola M. ill. by Paul Meisel, Swamp Chomp. Holiday House, 2014. PICTURE BOOK.

It’s almost time for lunch in the swamp. Watch as different creatures hunt down their next meal, but watch out for the alligator. A simple, but effective introduction for young children to the food chain. The pictures are bright and eye-catching. The text is simple, but informative. At the end, the endnote covers a basic introduction and gives the reader more information in a quick and to the point. A good first informational picture book for teacher/parents to read aloud or for beginning reader to read with an adult. PreK, EL (K-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
