Learning becomes fun when it is to the tune of an old favorite sing along! Readers gain knowledge of the ecosystem in a pond and gain an appreciation for the world around us!

Old MacDonald had a … pond? Yes! Come along with Jo MacDonald and learn about the wild creatures at the pond. You'll find fish, frogs and ducks—and a few surprises. This delightful riff on "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" playfully introduces youngsters to the concept of ecosystems. Quattlebaum engages little ones with rhythm, repetition, wordplay, and onomatopoeia, while Bryant charms them with lively watercolors of a pond habitat. A resource section in the back features both outdoor and indoor activities and games sure to encourage young naturalists at home and school. Jo MacDonald's pond discoveries closely resemble those that Mary discovered, too, when she grew up in the country with fields, gardens and ponds.

Perfect for anyone looking for:

  • books for homeschooling materials
  • sing along books for toddlers and kids!
  • exploring nature activity books for kids!
