Little ones learn about the diets of various critters.
Each of the six double-page spreads is set in a different environment, beginning with “In the Home” and ending with “In the Jungle.” Rectangular windows with featured animals (a ladybug, frog, and robin on the “In the Garden” page, for example) appear on the recto with square, easy-to-move sliding panels that reveal their foods of choice (aphids, earthworm, and dragonfly, respectively) with a swipe to the left. On the verso, these same animals, drawn in toddler-friendly, cartoon fashion, appear in their habitat while simple lines of first-person text float nearby relating how each beast hunts or forages. Some of the information is oversimplified (the bear accesses honey from a conveniently pre-sawn stump with nary a bee in sight) and not entirely accurate (it can be unhealthy for birds to eat bread).
While the panels are fun to slide, little naturalists may want to uncover their information elsewhere. (Board book. 2-4)
