Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is a basic introduction to living science about the cockroach for beginning readers. Learn about what the cockroach looks like through physical descriptions with full-color close up photos to back it up along with how it lives within a colony and survives by eating dead plants and dead insects and crumbs. Each chapter has single sentence that is written in a simple context in oversized print to make it easier for the reader to focus on the meaning of the description without making it seem too basic. Included is a letter to parents which gives suggested guidelines, table of contents, a glossary with detailed descriptions to help the reader better understand the word and context, list of books for additional reading, list of internet sites, and an added feature is a word list combined with the index. The size of the book is perfect for small little hands to hold while reading about science. A wonderful addition for the library to assist in the beginning steps of research report writing. Part of the "Insect" series. 2003, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 8.
