Gobble It Up!

Gobble It Up!

by Jim Arnosky
Join Jim Arnosky's song as a hungry crocodile attempts a meal of wild ducklings, a shark cruises for schools of fish, a whale wrestles a wild giant squid, and more. While some animals become food, and some get away, readers will delight in seeing what different animals eat, and how they catch their dinner!

Enjoy this sample verse:

If you were a wild raccoon,
You'd hunt at night by the light of the moon.
You'd catch some crawdads where they crawl,
And gobble them up — shells and all!
