Homeschoolbookreview on LibraryThing 10 months ago
Do you know what a ¿food chain¿ is? No, it¿s not a ring of fruits or vegetables that you put around your neck to munch on. This book doesn¿t so much define a food chain as it simply illustrates different food chains within a single ecosystem, thus introducing children to the concept of the food web. A shiny green beetle is eaten by a slithering snake which in turn is eaten by a hawk. A frog is eaten by a bass. A plump leaf-eating caterpillar is eaten by a lizard. What animal do you think is at the top of this last food chain and eats the lizard? Author Pam Kapchinske light-hearted romp through these food chains is so much fun that kids won¿t know that they¿re actually learning. Even though the fact that some animals eat other animals is part of the food web and must be understood, sensitive children will appreciate the fact that Sherry Rogers¿s colorful illustrations don¿t show any of the animals actually chomping down on their prey. The four pages of ¿For Creative Minds¿ educational section has information about the differences between herbivores and carnivores and between predators and prey, a true-false food chains quiz, questions about animal classification, and an animal adaptations matching activity. Parents and teachers can find more free resources at the publisher¿s website. Youngsters will be singing ¿Hey Diddle Diddle¿ while finding out which creatures come out on top and which end up as snacks.

Hey Diddle Diddle, A Food Chain Tale is a whimsical story about the interconnectedness of eight different animals and the food chain that results within this ecosystem. The story is told using enchanting rhyming verses. Each animal within the food chain has its own little niche within the broader ecosystem. As each animal is introduced within the storyline, other facts as to its characteristics or classification is revealed making the story much more than just the study of a food chain. The illustrator has also done a marvelous job picturing the animals in a charming way. Each animal is pictured within its natural habitat and accurately displays characteristics true of each animal. Included after the story is a section entitled, “For Creative Minds”. It has several different kinds of matching games and activities. These games enlarge upon facts already learned in the story, such as the difference between herbivores and carnivores, and the predator and prey relationship. It also includes an activity that teaches animal characteristics and classification. Finally, the author includes a website that consists of more activities that the reader may enjoy while learning about basic biology facts. I enjoyed the book immensely, and I think it would be a wonderful addition to any early elementary classroom or as an addition to a home collection to be read again and again!
