Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
To most people, insects are irritating pests. They eat crops, sting, bite, and spread disease. But they are also important in the pollination of many flowers and trees. Bees produce honey. Silk moth caterpillars spin silk thread that we turn into elegant fabric. And shellac is a varnish made from the secretions of certain insects. The variety and sheer numbers of insects is just amazing. This book discusses how insects rule the world and describes insect bodies. It discusses ancient insects, the power of flight, insect legs, insect senses, their camouflage, hunting, the plant-eaters, the parasites, mating, maturity, community living, migration, forest insects, water insects, the scrub and desert insects, and the relationship between insects and humans. This book is filled with colorful, dramatic photos of insects. The pages are well organized and the text is interesting and yet written in clear language without talking down to the reader. The back matter contains an index, a bibliography, some web information, a glossary, and a chart for animal classification. This book is part of Compass Point Books' "Animal Kingdom Classification" series, which includes the titles Centipedes, Millipedes, Scorpions and Spiders; Ant Lions, Wasps and Other Insects; and Tree Frogs, Mud Puppies and Other Amphibians. 2005, Compass Point Books, Ages 7 to 10.
