Does A Fiddler Crab Fiddle? No! But fiddler crabs sure do some amazing things!
Starting with silly questions like the title, and moving on through increasingly-unlikely questions such as “do fiddler crabs ride a skateboard?,” and “do fiddler crabs eat pizza?,” children discover what fiddler crabs do. They don’t need a skateboard – they can move sideways so shore birds can’t catch them. They may not enjoy pizza, but they gobble up saltmarsh muck.
Using this question-and-answer format engages children immediately, and discovering just what fiddler crabs actually do satisfies their curiosity. This is the best kind of nonfiction – engaging, fun, and filled with the kinds of details that kids love.
Does A Fiddler Crab Fiddle? will have everyone claw clapping loudly for fiddler crabs!
With it’s author’s note providing more information, Does A Fiddler Crab Fiddle? is an outstanding nonfiction picture book for children ages 4-8.
