Children's Literature - Joyce RiceNorth America has about 650 different species of dragonflies. The most familiar is the Common Green Darner. It has clear wings and a bright green head and thorax. Closely related to the dragonfly, and often confused with it, is the damselfly. Belonging to the same order, but different suborders, they are alike in many ways. Part of the "Smart Apple Bugs" series, this is a visual treat. Additional resources are included in the form of an index and references for additional reading, web pages and museums. This is an excellent source for the middle school student looking for information on the specific subject. However, the inclusion of technical language such as class and order names will make it difficult for older elementary students who will be attracted to its abbreviated 32-page length. Middle school classroom teachers will find this a good resource for a unit on insects.
