Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
A book in the "Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science" series, Who Eats What is an elementary, straightforward approach to the biological systems of food chains and webs. Simple, but adequate illustrations serve to enhance the increasingly complex and interdependent systems of this area of the environment and its preservation. Examples of breaks in the chains and its' results are valuable points of departure for further exploration. Suggestions for further activities are included.
