"What Eats What in a Desert Food Chain accurately walks the reader through each role in a food chain, page by page. This book begins with the source of energy as the sun, and continues organism by organism through a food chain, ending with the decomposers placing the matter back into the soil. As each new role is introduced it is clearly defined at the bottom of the page. Even though this book was written for upper elementary students, I found it useful to review and reintroduce food chains to my high school students. The vocabulary highlighted in the book is accurate and clearly described. The colorful illustrations in the book make it appealing to students of all ages. In the back of the book is an example of a food web, glossary, and Web links. This book is a great example of a food chain that can be used in the classroom at many age levels." - Science Books & Films
