Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Caroline B. Hopenwasser
This nonfiction text introduces young readers to the complicated cycle of predator and prey. The text begins by explaining that all living things need food to live and that some animals feed mostly on meat, making them carnivores. The text is then broken into chapters highlighting different types of carnivores: insects, spiders, birds, and cats, just to name a few. It veers off-track at the end, delving into the process of plants obtaining energy from photosynthesis, passing that on to herbivores that then provide energy for the carnivores. Though interesting, this section seems to meander away from the main point of the text. A section about plant carnivores is tacked on after that, seemingly as an afterthought. Though the organization of the text may be a bit confusing for young children, the amazing full-color photographs accompanying the text are sure to keep their attention. All in all, this book is an interesting introduction to carnivores for young nature enthusiasts. Reviewer: Caroline B. Hopenwasser
