0 Reviews
All living things need food to survive, but not all living things eat the same kinds of food. Plants make their own food from sunlight, air, and water. Herbivores graze on grass or browse on the leaves of bushes. Carnivores hunt, trap, or scavenge for food. The bodies of living things are specially designed to find the types of food they need. Through captivating photographs and simple text, children will learn about food-gathering techniques animals use, such as camouflage, echolocation, pouncing, trapping, poisoning, and using tools. This book will leave them with a hunger to learn more.
