Imagine living and working in the same building! Many people have to make a journey to work each day, but in the windmill, you would just you have to climb some stairs. And you’d have to climb even more stairs if you lived and worked in a lighthouse.
Some people live in a house that’s close to the ground, in a small cottage or a single-story home. Others enjoy living high above the ground.
Old MacDonald had a...pond? Yes! Come along with Jo MacDonald and learn about the wild creatures at the farm pond. You'll find fish, frogs, ducks--and a few surprises. This delightful riff on "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" playfully introduces youngsters to the concept of ecosystems. Quattlebaum engages little ones with rhythm, repetition, wordplay, and onomatopoeia, while Bryant charms them with lively watercolors of a pond community. A resource section in the back features both outdoor and indoor activities and games sure to encourage young naturalists at home and school. Jo MacDonald's pond discoveries closely resemble those that Mary discovered, too, when she grew up in the country with fields, gardens and ponds.
