Desert Food Chains

This book explores the food chains and webs that exist in a desert habitat. It equips readers with crucial vocabulary, using examples from that habitat to explain the roles of producers, consumers and decomposers, and illustrates how living things depend upon each other. Readers learn how fragile food chains can be, how they can be broken, and what we can do to prevent this.

"STARRED REVIEW! The attractive and well-organized books in this series present food chains and webs for six environmental settings. . . .Illustrated diagrams of the food chains make it easy to understand relationships among the plants and animals of each. The series provides interesting and readable information for students across elementary grades." - School Library Connection

NSTA Recommends - Janet Acerra, 5th grade teacher and College Adjunct Instructor

"This series leaves nothing out and makes sure to cover all of the aspects of food chains and webs that a child would need to know. The book has large text and is written for primary readers, however, it is a useful tool for all elementary students. Putting these books in the hands of children will ensure complete understanding of this important life science concept and help develop interest and understanding of the menagerie of animals that exist all over the world!" - NSTA Recommends

School Library Journal - John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York City

"...these studies progress from examining each element in a simple food chain to a more complex one. They then move on to a food web, before ending with very brief observations about environmental damage and conservation efforts. Each volume focuses on three selected examples of a particular habitat and in accessible language...explains the relationships among the elements in the chain or web from plant or other energy producer to top predator." - School Library Journal
