Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Youngsters who delve into this well organized twenty-four page book have no reason to find insects to be creepy! Instead, fascinating text offers some little-known information about the big and small insects all over the world. Included in three chapters are beetles, insects with stingers, and insects that are sometimes considered to be "icky." Four to six sentences, written in an easy-to-understand manner, share each page with close up, enlarged photos and simple sidebars with extra facts. World maps for each chapter help readers see where the insects live. Animated kid characters who are investigating the critters and a friendly monkey hanging on some sidebars are scattered throughout and add appeal to the format. A glossary at the front of the book defines burrows, larvae, parasites, and tropical—all words that are found in the text. Resources in the form of books, websites, and an index make up the end material. This book, and others from the series, can enrich science lessons because they are reader-friendly and easy to understand. Part of the "Biggest vs Smallest" series. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
