Nonfiction Monday: Just One Bite

Just One Bite: 11 Animals and their Bites at Life Size! Lola M. Schaefer. Illustrated by Geoff Waring. 2010. September 2010. Chronicle Books. 40 pages.
With just one scoop,
a worm can eat...
this much dirt
(and everything in it)!

With just one sip,
a butterfly can eat...
this much nectar.
There's a good reason this picture book is so large. It shows 11 Animals (and their Bites) at Life Size. This one is just right for curious kids...and adults! How much can a giraffe eat in just one bite? More than a worm, that's for sure! And less than an elephant or sperm whale!

The book concludes by providing readers with more details. Each animal getting their own informational paragraph.

I loved the illustrations. And this was a fun concept too!
