About the Book:

In this nonfiction picture book, discover how the animal kingdom's food chain takes shape, from the lowly worm to the mighty king of the jungle.

There was a blue sky with a bright shining sun,
A dazzling, life-giving, fiery sun.
The day had begun.

Follow along as a day in the life of the food chain begins. From the sun that shines upon the grass and trees to the animals that feed each other, each element in nature has its place. But what happens when the food escapes? This cumulative story will delight, with a surprise ending that all science lovers will enjoy.
