Excellent non-fiction book for younger readers. Bought when daughter just turned 4 and she loves it. She has some of the others in the series, but this is her favourite. An good first "Science" book, covering the food chain (and death) in easy to understand, mostly non-scientific language and using the method of story-telling rather than bare facts to hold the attention of a young child. There are bits of text which use more difficult words but the way the book is written in small chunks presented in separate boxes mean you can skip bits and just read the most pertinent text to keep their attention. As the child gets older you can read all the text or they can read it themselves as it uses fairly simple language throughout. I found this unexpectedly moving in places. It is a lovely book.
