A playful approach to an endlessly fascinating non-fiction topic for children, touching on two high-interest categories: animals and food.
Animals eat animals in this informative exposé 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!
