Description

From Scribd: About the Book

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!
