Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ages 5^-8. This Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science book presents food chains and food webs on land and under water. Besides showing who eats what in the wild, it brings the food chain idea closer to home with the suggestion that children draw pictures showing the chains for the things they eat, such as their milk, which came from a cow, which ate grass. Clear, simple ink-and-watercolor drawings illustrate the clear, simple text. Informative and intriguing, this basic science book leads children to think about the complex and interdependent web of life on Earth. Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

What do you and a tuna have in common?

You and the tuna are both parts of a food chain. This food chain begins with green plants and ends with you at the top. Every link in a food chain is important, because each living thing depends on others for survival.

Patricia Lauber and Holly Keller will inspire you to draw your own food chains.

Customer Reviews

I would recommend it for anyone teaching!
Lynn Ferrell
I found this book to be very entertaining and I feel the children's interest held to the very end of the story.
Brenda J. Roberts
This book was great for teaching and illustrating the various food chains and food webs.

By the time the kids are at this level most of them already have some idea of the food chain concept (and anybody who has played Magic School Bus Animals definitely will!). It sits right at the cross roads of two levels- a solid first grade book, perhaps.

This book works well with the picture book "The Magic School Bus Gets Eaten" or "MSB Food Chain Frenzy". Best thing of all is the illustrations in this book -- they really convey the information. My kids really "get" it from the visuals.

Disappointing. We have several books in this series and love all the others. I am okay with simplifying science so that is is accessible to children. Unfortunately this book just lies. All food chains do not start with green plants. In fact many food chains, particularly aquatic food chains do not. The kelp and "tiny plants" (read microorganisms like diatoms that are capable of photosynthesis but are NOT plants) pictured on page 22 of this book are perfect examples. A simple change to say that all food chains begin with organisms like green plants that get their energy from the sun keeps it simple without taking us back hundreds of years to a time before microscopes. (For you biologists out there. Yes, I know this is still an an oversimplification, but it does apply to the vast majority of food chains that children will be familiar with. Feel free to add your own lesson about the microbes that get there energy from the heat produced by underwater volcanoes).

I used it to make an interactive bulletin board for my classroom. It is simple but it gets the point across. I use it with my 8th and 9th grade students, and they don't mind that it's a picture book.

This book was great for teaching and illustrating the various food chains and food webs. I used this book during my lesson on food chains in conjunction with a video and it served it's purpose.

A neat book explaining the sometimes hard to explain to little children...the food chain. I'm very happy to read this to my class when we learn about the animal kingdom and the food chain.
