Hey Diddle Diddle:
A Food Chain Tale

written by Pam Kapchinske and illustrated by Sherry Rogers


Written to the tune of Hey Diddle Diddle, this title provides three different examples of food chains in one ecosystem. The approach is decidedly whimsical and fun, but still educational.

We're told that your kids will be bouncing along with this rhythmic, fun tale that also happens to be packed with accessible information. We haven't been able to review this book yet, but it's on our list to order so our review will be added soon. In the meantime...

Teachers have written in to tell us that if you are looking for a cute and fun approach to food chains for kids, this is a good pick (as opposed to more a scientific approach.) And..there's a lengthy resources section at the end of the book. To see what we mean, click the 'see inside' link at left for sample pages.)
