You know what it’s like to be hungry-really hungry? What would you do if the only food available was so tiny there was no way it will fill you up?
That is the dilemma faced by Bordeaux the alligator in author Eleanor Blackwell’s Lunch. In this beautifully illustrated book, Blackwell tells the Cajun story of Frog and Bordeaux. The alligator wants Frog for lunch, but he’s much too small. As Frog eats his lunch, he gets bigger and bigger, until …well, until Bordeaux does what alligators do!
Besides being an entertaining story, Lunch is a great introduction to the animal food chain for young children. Whether the story is read to them or they read it to others, children will enjoy this tale of life on the bayou.
