The algae-covered swamp may look like a quiet, serene place, with turtle taking a snooze and a duck paddling in ooze. But do you see those eyes poking out of the water? Watch out! Gators hunt by stealth, and gator is looking for lunch. Who will it be? The turtle? The duck? The egret? The deer? Here’s a suspenseful but accurate introduction to real-life animals that live in the swamp. When gator ultimately goes one of the animals, does he have it for lunch, or does it get away? In this app, children can choose. In the follow-up “get-away game,” children help each of nine potential “lunches” escape gator’s jaws. In real life, gators lunge very fast—can the player be faster than gator?
Reviews for the book include: ★ Booking Mama says: “THE SWAMP WHERE GATOR HIDES is a fantastic book! I love how it goes to the next level in teaching kids about our world!”
★ Grade Reading – Sue Podesta: “On every page, kids can search for half-submerged Gator, camouflaged in layered shades of green. . . . This book introduces young readers to swamp ecosystems and the critters that inhabit them, the role of camouflage, and predator-prey relationships.”
★ An Angel’s Kiss says: “This rhyming text is an instant children's classic . . . An educational book that teaches about the swamp, each creature and the dynamics of the predator and the prey. Highly recommended!!!”
