The Hungriest Mouth in the Sea - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Arbordale Publishing.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 
The animals of the South Sea are hungry. But who is hungrier than all of the rest? The kicking krill may swarm and the blue cod are out hunting for dinner, but neither is fierce enough to be tops in this habitat. Could it be the lurking sharks, pointy-tailed rays or the toothy barracuda? Dive into this rhythmic text to discover who is at the top of this food chain.

My Review:

Told in rhythmic form, The Hungriest Mouth in the Sea keeps children guessing which sea creature is at the top of the food chain.  It also gives clues as to which sea life is considered predators and which are considered prey.  Some animals illustrated in the book are squid, whales, sharks, and seals. 

The "For Creative Minds" section at the back of the book is a wealth of information on marine mammals and has a matching game on predator and prey.  There are also Food Web Cards that can be used to play games or learn more info.  For instance, children will learn that a penguin's prey is small fish and squid while a penguin's predator is orca, seal, and shark.

The Hungriest Mouth in the Sea is a Fall 2015 book release by Arbordale Publishing.
Win It!
 
One person will win a book copy of The Hungriest Mouth in the Sea.

I love all those little crabs you can find in the sand at the beach. We have tons of fun chasing and observing those little guys.
