Set to the melody of “Over in the Meadow,” readers will love reading, counting, and singing along with the creatures that live in the swamp. Count from one otter pup and his mother, two little turtles and their mama snapping turtle, three little chicks and their mother flame bird, all the way up to ten baby crayfish in their underwater den.

With lush illustrations from the award-winning Brian Lies, the habitats come to life with vibrant color and detail, as they show all the plants and animals that make the swamp their home.

For more advanced readers, backmatter includes fun facts about all the flora and fauna named in this story, set in the Okefenokee Swamp.

(easy, poetry, counting, Louisiana) This book follows several critter's activities in a basic day on the swamp. With each page, a new critter is introduced in rhyming fashion and the count increases with each page. For example, the first page is one river otter with her mama, second page is two baby turtles with their mama and so on. This is a good book to read to younger children to introduce them to a swamp habitat. When I read it to children in my library, they were inquisitive about several words in the book as well, such as the word, 'bask". So not only is counting and swamp habitat broached in this book but vocabulary as well.
