Author Pam Kapchinske light-hearted romp through these food chains is so much fun that kids won't know that they're actually learning. Even though the fact that some animals eat other animals is part of the food web and must be understood, sensitive children will appreciate the fact that Sherry Rogers's colorful illustrations don't show any of the animals actually chomping down on their prey. The four pages of "For Creative Minds" educational section has information about the differences between herbivores and carnivores and between predators and prey, a true-false food chains quiz, questions about animal classification, and an animal adaptations matching activity. Parents and teachers can find more free resources at the publisher's website. Youngsters will be singing "Hey Diddle Diddle" while finding out which creatures come out on top and which end up as snacks.
