Does A Fiddler Crab Fiddle?
Does a Fiddler Crab Fiddle by Corinne Demas and Artemis Roehrig and illustrated by John Sandford starts 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. Engaging and fun for children ages 4 to 8 years.
