Sing along to this light-hearted romp while learning about different food chains within a single ecosystem. Which animals come out on top, and which animals end up as snacks? Hey Diddle Diddle teaches children about the food web, the circle of life, and the part that each living creature plays within an ecosystem. This book is so much fun, kids will have a hard time believing they’re actually learning. You’ll be singing Hey Diddle Diddle long after you close the book.

This fictional story with rhyming text includes a 4-page For Creative Minds section in the back of the book and a 49-page cross-curricular Teaching Activity Guide online. Hey Diddle Diddle is vetted by experts and designed to encourage parental engagement. Its extensive back matter helps teachers with time-saving lesson ideas, provides extensions for science, math, and social studies units, and uses inquiry-based learning to help build critical thinking skills in young readers. The Spanish translation supports ELL and dual-language programs. The interactive ebook reads aloud in both English and Spanish with word highlighting and audio speed control to promote oral language skills, fluency, pronunciation, text engagement, and reading comprehension.

Reviews:

This rhyming book should keep young children engaged and is appropriate for children in pre-school through the third grade. It would be a great addition to any elementary school science curriculum. - Science Books & Films

The [beat is] rollicking and will likely have readers and listeners alike tapping their toes. - Kirkus Reviews

This book doesn't so much define a food chain as it simply illustrates different food chains within a single ecosystem, thus introducing children to the concept of the food web. - Home School Book Review
