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

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.
