Synopsis

Staying Alive The Story of a Food Chain by Jacqui Bailey

This series uses cartoon-style illustrations and humorous narrative text to make key topics in Science and Geography accessible and engaging. This approach encourages children to read about and understand complex ideas. The story looks at a food chain on the grasslands of Africa. We find out how plants create their food from sunlight. We see the way insects feed on plants and birds feed on insects. How zebras feed on grass, and lions feed on zebras. Each creature has its own source of food - and forms part of the food chain. The book also contains an experiment, useful websites and an index. Reviews for previous titles in the Science Works series: 'Making science accessible and fun for younger readers is no easy task, but the author/illustrator partnership of Bailey and Lilly makes a brilliant job of it...Bright appealing cartoon-style artwork and a continuous narrative text treat each topic in the form of a story...Highly recommended' Books for Keeps, 5 star review. 'Using a clear and engaging narrative format with well-conceived and lavishly produced illustrations, the Science Works series interweaves science knowledge into a story with humour and interest' Times Educational Supplement.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
