Library Media Connection - Mary Northrup

"After reading one of more of these books, students should know exactly what constitutes a food chain and a food web. Each book defines its habitat, explaining a food chain, focusing on the parts of the food chain, describing particular food chains native to geographical regions, and explaining how the habitats are being harmed. With clear diagrams, color photographs, and maps, the visual aspects supplement the text beautifully. The books do a good job of explaining the part that each link in the food chain plays. Sidebars on particular features of a habitat, endangered animals of that habitat, and other interesting facts add variety to the visual layout. A strong theme of environmentalism runs through every one of the books, culminating in a final chapter with "Top 10 Things You Can Do" to protect the particular food chain and habitat. This series would provide good supplementary material for science classes and geography classes. Young activists might want to pick these up for independent reading. Bibliography. Glossary. Websites. Index. – Mary Northrup, Reference Librarian, Metropolitan Community College-Maple Woods, Kansas City, Missouri Library Media Connection January/February 2011" - Library Media Connection

Arlington Independent School District - Patty Pardue

"Part of the series, Protecting Food Chains, this book covers mountain food chains with a lot of detail. Diagrams and nice clear pictures help students visualize the area. Information is included on environmental issues, including how we can protect the mountain. Various mountain groups are included adding a touch of geography. Many sidebars provide additional information and are presented consistently with a blue background making them jump out if you are just scanning throughout the book. The glossary defines many terms additional websites are provided. Overall this book should work well for reports. –Patty Pardue, Ashworth School Arlington Independent School District 1/27/2011" - Arlington Independent School District

Omaha Public Schools - Lucille Saunders

"This book explores food chains and webs and the parts within the: producers, secondary consumers, primary consumers, and decomposers. It takes the readers to the mountains of the world. It would be an excellent addition to the science section of any intermediate, middle or high school library. Some of it might be difficult for the intermediate. Even younger ones study the food chains and the pictures in this book might be helpful. –Lucille Saunders, Retired Omaha Public Schools" - Omaha Public Schools
