Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Meet a variety of creepy crawlies in this "Viking Science Easy-to-Read" book. Delightful, colored pencil illustrations show an attractive boy and girl looking at various insects (bugs, beetles and butterflies) they encounter while a rhyming text offers observations about the characteristics of these flying and crawling creatures. Four pages at the end give the names of the insects, a reference to the page in the text, and a close up view. The final page suggests a few activities.
