It's not just a question of what they eat, but how much!
Curious kids are going to like this one. Just One Bite opens up the world of animals one mouth at a time. With minimal text and bright, colorful artwork they are going to be able see exactly how a giraffe eats, and what. My own personal favorite was the worm. I was surprised at how much they could eat at one time. Who knew?
Just One Bite is an interesting early-science book that introduces children to the habits and habitats of 11 animals. The animals range from a tiny worm to a giant whale with creatures that inhabit land, sea and air.
I really like the information provided, and the fact that the book is very large and colorful and could easily be used with more than one child.
I could also see homeschoolers and teachers using it as the basis of a science unit where you could expand upon the notion of habitat and food chain.
Our one complaint came from my 8-year old son who wanted more 'exact' artwork, and who had a little trouble interpreting the pictures.
Everyone loved the pages that folded out so that the artwork sprawled over 4 pages!
