Take an illustrated narrative nonfiction journey to a North American prairie and discover how animals and plants in a grassland survive in an interconnected food web. The wide-open prairie is home to many grass-grazing herbivores, including the prairie dog and bison. Sneaky predators, like black-footed ferrets and wolves, have to work extra hard to catch their next meal. Vibrant artwork illustrates the link between producers, consumers, and apex predators while carefully leveled text weaves a cohesive story that explains the importance of each element in the ecosystem. A food web model summarizes the information, making this an excellent resource for Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in elementary grades. Perfect for animal lovers, nature enthusiasts, and budding science buffs. Graphics: Full-color illustrations. Number of pages: 24.
