A straightforward early introduction to food chains for kids -- in the ocean and on land. Readers learn about the food chain from basic plants and simple organisms all the way up to humans.
This book is part of the fabulous Let's Read and Find Out Science series!
Detailed enough to teach scientific concepts but not too detailed that it risks losing young readers. Covers the food chain in the wild and brings it closer to home by encouraging readers to draw the food chains for the things they eat. Booklist called it "informative and intriguing." Agree. Holly Keller's watercolor drawings are cute and help to clarify the concepts.
This book was a National Science Teachers' Association Outstanding Science Children's Book in 1996!
