Does A Fiddler Crab Fiddle? No! But fiddler crabs sure do some amazing things!
Starting with silly questions like the title, and moving on through increasingly-unlikely questions such as "do fiddler crabs ride a skateboard?" and "do fiddler crabs eat pizza?" children discover what fiddler crabs do. They don't need a skateboard―they can move sideways so shore birds can't catch them. They may not enjoy pizza, but they gobble up saltmarsh muck.
Using this question-and-answer format engages children immediately, and discovering just what fiddler crabs actually do satisfies their curiosity. This is the best kind of nonfiction―engaging, fun, and filled with the kinds of details that kids love.
