Deep in the Swamp

1 CD. 17.12 min. Live Oak Media. 2014. $19.95. ISBN 9781430114598.
Gr 2–4—The Okefenokee Swamp sets the backdrop for a clever retake on a familiar children's story, "Over in the Meadow." The swamp is home to a wide array of animals including crayfish, blue herons, flame birds, and river otters. The list of topic discussions are plentiful: ecosystems, flora and fauna, counting, and when paired with the audio, singing. Tom Chapin's narration and musical talents bring to life the scurrying, splashing, trilling, and soaring world of bog life. A brief overview of the Okefenokee Swamp and its inhabitants are included.
