Author Donna Bateman brings us this beautifully illustrated children's story, "Deep in the Swamp." 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.
