Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
What animals eat and how they eat is a real source of fascination for humans. The cycle of nature is presented in the opening by explaining that a mouse may eat seeds and then in turn be eaten by a snake, which may be the prey for a swift and hungry owl. Some animals are vegetarians, others are carnivores, and some are omnivores (they eat meat and plants, and humans fall in this category). A quiz on the opening spread asks what each of the animals eats and lists the answers on the last page. In between, readers learn that meat eaters have sharp teeth; other animals have tongues that snatch up their food, while some eat and store seeds. There are plenty of facts to go along with the illustrations of the selected group of animals and some border on the gross, which will be a thrill for some kids—like the one of the python eating a whole deer. Many animals are solitary feeders; others hunt and feed in groups, but often there is a pecking order as to who gets first dibs on the food. There are plenty of tidbits to share with friends, such as the fact that koalas do not drink because they get what they need from the leaves they eat, and frogs do not drink through their mouths but absorb water through their skin. A well-written and illustrated reader that should provide plenty of food for inquiring minds. A Level 3 book in the "Kids Can Read" series.
