Booklist - 04/15/2017 A squirrel nibbling an acorn may go unnoticed in the backyard, but these entries in the Who Eats What? series show the importance of food chains around the world. Each title introduces a particular biome and its climate and uses a map to show where each exists on the planet. The bulk of the accessible text focuses on the makeup of food chains, including producers, consumers, predators, and, finally, decomposers, which help start the cycle again. Coral Reef Food Chains tells why this biome is the most diverse, making up less than 0.2 percent of the ocean floor but possessing nearly one-third of all ocean life. Each book presents examples of multiple food chains in multiple formats, such as narrative depictions, charts, and high-quality color photos. This visually enticing series will make learning early science standards an enjoyable mission. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
