    Have you ever been in a swamp? What kind of wildlife lives in swamps? A swamp is a unique kind of half-land, half-water wetland habitat. The swamp in The Swamp Where Gator Hides is the Florida Everglades, where the warm, wet, subtropical climate provides ideal conditions for not only alligators, but also dabbling ducks, red bellied turtles, cottonmouth snakes, bullfrogs, white deer, great egrets, voles, bobcats, and sunfish. Which one will the camouflaged gator that hides under the carpet of algae in the swamp get to eat—if any?

    This rhyming text by Marianne Berkes, which follows the cumulative pattern of “The House that Jack Built,” and the colorful, convincing illustrations by Roberta Baird introduce young readers to the ecological environment of the swamp. A section at the end has a page of further explanation about the world of the swamp in general and a couple of pages with more information on the various animals mentioned in the book, along with tips for fun learning activities from both the author and the illustrator. Kids will love searching for the hidden alligator in each double-page drawing as they learn about predator-prey relationships.
