Author(s): Dave Ladd and Stephanie Anderson
Animals eat animals in this informative expose of three animal food chains Three of the longest food chains of the animal kingdom are depicted in three accordion-foldout volumes, complete with stunning dimensional art and sparse read-aloud text. Young children will experience the factual, specific, and possibly surprising information via bright visuals, pleasingly repetitive text, and a physical folding-out of the chain itself. The food chains are themed as terrestrial, avian, and aquatic, respectively, fully researched and vetted by a professional. The information effectively expands upon the familiar experience of eating by portraying the parallel experience within the animal kingdom; it also creates a basis upon which to discuss the carnivorous tendencies of humans! Created for ages 2-4 years
"Playful, tactile and sure to appeal to the morbid fascination children have for who eats who." -The Bookseller
