Summary

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 introducesyoungsters 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!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Old MacDonald's granddaughter, Jo, discovers a quiet pond on the farm, thereby bringing a new ecosystem to today's readers within the familiar framework of a song they know and love. With notebook in hand, Jo draws each animal she spies as the pond community comes to life with a blurp-blurp here and a scree-scree there. When a largemouth bass leaps to catch a whirring dragonfly (but fortunately misses), he makes a huge splash that scatters the animals, and the pond is once again quiet. Young children will chime in at singing the tune as they enjoy the onomatapoeia and meet eight pond inhabitants. Bryant's appealing, soft-flowing watercolors offer clues as to what animal comes next and are great for encouraging predictions. Back matter includes Jo's drawings, an activity for kids to match sounds to animals, information on the flora and fauna, and ideas about how to become a naturalist like Jo.--Austin, Patricia Copyright 2010 Booklist"
