The most entertaining of these books is Hungry Animals. The pictures are charming, especially one of the snake being borne off with the outline of the toad still visible through its skin.

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Jill and her mother watch in fascinated amazement as one of nature's food chain cycles unfolds before their very eyes. One of three "First Look" books published by Kids Can Press, Hungry Animals provides an easy introduction to the world of nature for young children. Following a simple step-by-step pattern (much like The House That Jack Built), young readers follow and build upon each new step until the cycle is completed. Flaps that contain even more quality information are an added bonus.
