Nature's food chains are sometimes short (grass eaten by deer) and sometimes long (goldenrod eaten by caterpillar, eaten by spider, eaten by warbler, eaten by weasel, eaten by fox). Everyone is part of nature's fascinating circle of players.

About the Author
Barbara Shaw McKinney is a teacher as well as a poet. She was inspired to use the magic of children's literature to spark her students' curiosity about the wonders of water. She vowed to "turn a drop of rain into a drop of life, astounding children by its eternity." Her sprightly verse elicits a "water wow!" in A Drop Around the World, her first book. She is also the author of Pass the Energy Please!, a wonderful exploration of nature's food chain, written in rhyming verse. From Manchester, Connecticut, McKinney draws on her experience as a mother, musician, and curriculum developer to promote quality education through workshops for teachers.
