Descriere

Written by Scribd Editors

This roaringly funny book shows what it's like to be all by yourself at the top of the food chain. After all, the lion, the shark, and the wolf need to survive! It's not fair for those plant-eaters to be so mean. You only ate one of their family members, after all.

Aaron Reynolds and Dan Santat do an excellent job of bringing to life these goofy carnivores and pointing out that maybe these carnivores are a little confused about an inexcusable offense.

    I have to say that the book cover is what drew me to this book. The lion, great white shark, and the timber wolf are carnivores. They eat other animals. It bothers them that the other animals talk bad about them. They come up with several plans. When they try them out they discover they need a better plan, How will they solve this problem?

    Strong word choice, clever illustrations, this book espouses that it's ok we're carnivores. While animals try to change, disguise they end up embraces themselves and hanging out with their own kind. I'm not sure what the authors purpose is. It could be used to explore author's purpose and self love. Self protection could jump up from this book.

    This story is hilarious! It is wonderful for point of view and character. This is about Lion, Shark and Wolf, and the guilt they feel about being at the top of the food chain. My students will love this! What an interesting, unique perspective!

    Carnivores are just doing what they do, so cut them some slack. Fun story, great illustrations.

    This is a cute, comical story about 3 animals who try to go from carnivores to vegetarians, because they are tired of feeling left out by the other non-carnivorous animals. In the end they realize that they can only be who they are and that "eating meat is just what they do". The children love repeating the text after you read the words "I'm not bad. I'm just a carnivore. Eating meat is just what I do." The pictures are very creative and hilarious for children to look at. This book leaves everyone laughing out loud.

    I absolutely loved this book! I laughed through the entire thing. This book may teach children empathy in that they might understand how these poor carnivores feel at times. It also demonstrates the idea that we can't always change who we are, and it is okay to be our true selves, even if we don't always fit in. It shows children a different perspective than what is common, and is very entertaining along the way!

    This books focuses on three of the most popular carnivores from different climates -- the lion, the shark, and the timberwolf. While they may seem confident, these animals are very concerned about what the other animals think about them and say behind their backs. So, they all start hanging out together, and decide to try a couple different tactics (vegetarianism, costumes) to blend in with their other animals, to no avail. Eventually a wise owl encourages them to accept who they are, and they do just that by eating him right up. I adore this book. Wonderful, comical and detailed illustrations, a great plot/concept and hilarious language, and a wonderful moral of the story to boot: It doesn't matter what other people think of you. Just be yourself. My husband and I were cracking up as I read this aloud, so I think that this book appeals to kids of all ages. However, it would also fit in well with a lesson where students begin to learn about animals, habitats and their eating habits and strategies. LOVE IT.

    Such a funny book! When carnivores, Timber Wolf, Lion and Shark become friends, they try to figure out how to fit in. They try blending in and becoming vegetarians but nothing seems to work. They finally figure out how to be happy with themselves.

    This is a great book to use for perspective! Shark, Lion and Timber Wolf have decided to figure out a way to be liked by the other animals. They feel lonely being at the top of the food chain. They don't like being talked about behind their backs and having everyone fear them. The three of them try to change by becoming vegetarians. This plan does not work out for them. Next they try to change their appearance in order to fit in with the lower level food chain animals. This plan also does not work. In the end the three carnivores decide, at the advisement of owl, that they accept and embrace that they are carnivores. The three carnivores do just that and return back to their carnivorous lifestyle happy to be who they are! This story has a great message. Rather than try to be something you're not, embrace who you are. I think this would be a book my first graders would really enjoy. I know my own two boys (6,8) did!

    Fun story with cute illustrations! Will enjoy reading again and again.

    A book about three carnivores - a lion, a shark, and a wolf - struggling to be accepted for what they are.
    I found the entire story disquieting... Poor owl!
    Not suitable for small children, even if the description says "5-8 years". Read it alone before giving it to your children, and you'll see what I mean.
    The illustrations are great (and crude, go figure), but insufficient to make me change my mind.
