Hey Diddle Diddle: A Food Chain Tale; Arbordale Publishing
American Association for the Advancement of Science "Best Science Books of 2012"
Written by Pam Kapchinske; Illustrated by Sherry Rogers
“Hey Diddle Diddle” is a whimsical journey along a riparian food web through the songs and antics of eight interconnected species. From a shiny green beetle “tappin’ his feet and singin’ a song” to a smug bobcat that feels like the “queen” of the jungle, readers will observe several colorful characters moving through three food chains in a familiar North American habitat.
