This series has stunning photos, fascinating facts, and intriguing examples. "'Primary providers" are introduced along with photosynthesis. As the pyramid narrows, herbivores, omnivores, and carnivores specific to each ecosystem are presented. The roles of scavengers and decomposers close the loop. Humans are mentioned only in their relationship to global warming and the destruction of the ecosystems. The authors stay upbeat with suggestions for change. "Chew on This" insets add further interest and information. A photographic flow chart reviews the entire chain. These titles will support the science curriculum and appeal to general readers.
