E-book Carnivores by Aaron Reynolds

Aaron Reynolds is a master at writing hilarious books, and Carnivores, illustrated by Dan Santat, is no exception. This book will make you laugh while you’re learning about how carnivores actually work! This book is available as an e-book and a read-along book from RBDigital.

Carnivores book cover

Description from the publisher: “The lion is king of the jungle! The great white shark is sovereign of the seas! The timber wolf is emperor of the forests! But . . . it’s lonely at the top of the food chain. It’s difficult to fit in when plant eaters can be so cruel—just because you ate a relative of theirs that one time! What’s a carnivore to do? Aaron Reynolds’s roaringly funny text is perfectly paired with Dan Santat’s mouthwatering illustrations, creating a toothsome book that’s sure to stand out from the herd.”
