Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One of six in the “What is a Food Web” series, this edition, designed for elementary students, is all about life in the grasslands of the world, and how the food web works to sustain life there. The six chapters begin with a food web graphic followed by a discussion about grassland areas of the world, including a map. A short discussion about how food webs work especially in grassland areas is included. Additional chapters, accompanied by color photos, discuss grassland plants, plant eaters, meat eaters, decomposers, and people and grasslands. Emphasis is placed on how each part of the food web is essential for the maintenance of the entire grassland environment. The well-researched text includes boxed facts on grasslands and its inhabitants as well as a glossary, index, sources for further study for students and resources online for teachers. It would have been a plus to have the new terms in the glossary underlined or boldface as they appeared in the text as the whole food web concept will be new to most students. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.; Ages 8 to 10.
