Under the algae that carpets the swamp, near the duck who paddles in ooze, close to the turtle who takes a snooze . . . hides a gator! Still as a log, only his watchful eyes can be seen. But when gator moves, he really moves! What happens to the duck, the turtle, the egret, the deer, and the many other critters of the swamp when gator makes his move? Children will search for the gator and get a glimpse of real life in a swamp. Back material offers insight into this unique habitat and each of the featured animals. In Swamp Where Gator Hides Berkes offers tips on how to engage young children actively in the topic, and Baird – who lives in Texas and has gators in her back yard – offers insights into how she created the images digitally.
