Food Chains and Food Webs

Who Eats What?: Food Chains and Food Webs by Patricia Lauber is a Let’s Read-and-Find-Out Science Stage 2 picture book.
This is a perfect book selection to help you teach about food chains for any elementary age child. It truly covers it all with pictures that provide an excellent visual representation. 

“Take a walk and look around. You will see parts of many food chains. Look at the leaves and flowers of plants. Look at the bark of trees. Look at fruits, nuts, and seeds that have fallen to the ground. What animals are eating them?...All animals depend on green plants for food, even animals that doesn’t eat plants. Hawks, for example, do not eat green plants. But the hawk ate the wren that ate the caterpillar that ate the leaf of a green plant. And so the hawk is linked to green plants through the food chain. It needs the plants as much as the caterpillar does.”

If you are looking to invest in some science picture books, but you are not sure which books are worth buying, I would suggest this book is worth it (at least used).
