In our continuing series, KeepMePosted will be reading from the acclaimed book In The Sea by David Elliot. We selected this poetic book and an accompanying activity to enhance your children's skills with poetry, word choice and rhyming patterns.
Wahoo Cray lives in a zoo. His father is an animal wrangler, so he's grown up with all manner of gators, snakes, parrots, rats, monkeys, snappers, and more in his backyard. The critters he can handle. His father is the unpredictable one. When his dad takes a job with a reality TV show called "Expedition Survival!" the job keeps getting more complicated. And Wahoo's acquired a shadow named Tuna—a girl who's sporting a shiner courtesy of her old man and needs a place to hide out. They've only been on location in the Everglades for a day before Derek Badger, the show's boneheaded star, gets bitten by a bat and goes missing in a storm. Search parties head out and promptly get lost themselves. And then Tuna's dad shows up with a gun... In Chomp (Knopf, $16.99) by Carl Hiaasen, it's anyone's guess who will actually survive "Expedition Survival"... TICKETS REQUIRED: Free tickets available at our Coral Gables, Miami Beach and Bal Harbour Shops stores.
