I am SOOO happy to have finally found this book. This is the first book I remember from my childhood after ABC and picture books (my parents love to read, and gave me books as soon as I could hold them), and I had been trying to find it for so long.

Grades 3-5. Narrative nonfiction, based on true events. A great story about what happens when the food chain collapses because of the loss of a keystone species. Wolves are suddenly not around on a small island-- so certain populations boom, create scarce food resources for others, and then everyone is hungry. Until the wolves come back.

This book is Wolf Island by Celia Godkin. This book can be used in 2 to 4 grade classrooms. This book can be used for lessons on the ecosystems and food chains. This book chronicles what might happen when the highest link in a food chain is removed.

This book is a great resource for discussing eco-systems. The story shows the delicate balance of animals and plants when the top of the food chain- Wolves leave the island. This book could be used from grade 1st-through 5th either as stand-alone story or as introduction to eco-systems.

This book is very educational and interesting. It teaches you how important ecosystems are.

explains the importance of balance in an ecosystem by showing kids what happens when the wolves leave the island. Not a read aloud book to a group.

This is a simple book of cause and effect. It is o.k. The illustrations are nice though.

A look at what happens to an ecosystem when a link in the food chain is removed.
