Or that bacteria, crabs, and lobsters break down dead plants and animals into nutrients? See ocean food webs in action in this fascinating book.

"Common Core connections abound in this series and higher level vocabulary is included from the very beginning. Students may need to read more to find out what 'producers' and 'consumers' mean, but they are treated to language that has not been 'dumbed down.' The text is still accessible to students; it can be read and understood by the intended audience. Food webs are introduced to younger students by giving examples of how plant life and animal life interact and different habitats." (Library Media Connection)
