"This title in the Explore series focuses on predators and their prey, encompassing everything from mammals to insects to plants. The upbeat, direct-address prose is aided by colorful layouts and cartoon drawings, jokes, facts, and activities. An introductory chapter overviews the predator-prey relationship and the scientific method (including a worksheet example) and provides a journal-making project. Subsequent chapters discuss diverse ways various predators and prey hunt and survive, like using venom, camouflage, or traveling in groups, and touch on ecological issues... With broad-ranging, intriguing information, accessibly conveyed scientific concepts, and plenty of key vocabulary terms, this is useful resource for educators. Plenty of questions sprinkled throughout the text invite engagement as well. In addition to the usual back matter, further reading resources include websites, many of which are accessible via QR codes."
