Children's LiteratureI have ears on my legs, live underground during the day, and speak to my friends by rubbing my legs together . . . what am I? In Hall's book, we find out what crickets are, how they look, and what they do, just as the table of contents promises. Geared to early readers, images support the text, and repetition gently helps readers learn new words. Shorter than this review, the book's word count totals 89. Close up, full color photographs make those leaping legs, long thin antennas, and chewing jaws easily recognizable. Twenty-four pages in length, this book includes a table of contents, an index, book and website references, and a glossary. The web reference is Capstone Press's own www.facthound.com—a "safe, fun way to find" related Internet sites. A note at the beginning of the book informs us that this series "supports national science standards related to the diversity of life and heredity." Other titles in the "Bugs, Bugs, Bugs!" series include Ants, Grasshoppers, Ladybugs, Praying Mantises, and Spiders. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 7.
