Children's Literature - Children's LiteratureBugs, flies, and other creatures that flit about or crawl on the ground are more plentiful than people. In this series of nonfiction books, a straightforward text, consisting of declarative sentences, is accompanied by full-color photographs--all of which provide kids with a few basic facts about the most common insects. This title shows ants in a variety of colors and sizes including close-up shots of their wings, legs and strong jaws that enable ants to transport objects many times their size and weight. There is a table of contents, advice to parents and teachers, glossary (definitions are written at a higher level than the text), bibliography that includes at least three references and a similar number of Internet sites, and index/word list. This title in the "Insects" series has the look and feel of a regular reference book and is designed for emergent readers. 1999, Pebble Books, Ages 4 to 6, $13.25. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
