Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Picture a meadow covered with brightly colored wildflowers and swaying grasses. Does it seem like the perfect spot for a picnic? After reading this title young readers may look at this same meadow not as a play spot, but as an important place where all kinds of life exists. Kalman uses meadows as a backdrop for explaining the familiar biological concept of food chains. Clearly-defined words, colorful graphics and easy-to-read text show children how the sun's energy passes from one living thing to another. Ideas such as tertiary consumers and opportunist feeders do not seem quite as complicated with this basic introduction. A discussion of how to keep meadows safe leaves readers with a more personal connection between what they have just learned and their daily lives. 2005, Crabtree Publishing, and Ages 8 to 12.
