Editorial Reviews

Science Books and Films
Clearly written and should guide the child to a number of insights into insect structure and behavior.
Booklist
The series encourages children to become close observers of nature and also provides step-by-step experiments and activities to perform. Hickman has done a good job of finding interesting tidbits of information and making comparisons. The type is large, and the colorful drawings are attractive.
Horn Book Guide

Children's Literature - Teresa Jindo
In this interactive book children learn about insects and nature. Hickman briefly explains that the book is about a variety of insects-not just bugs, which are one type of insect. While it may not seem significant, this is an important detail for children to know when they are learning about nature since many people equate insects to bugs. The detailed illustrations bring the insects to life, and the text provides activities that allow readers to further investigate nature in a safe and respectful manner. It also encourages readers to ask questions.
