Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Wonder abounds in the insect world. Many young children are fascinated by the insects they see in their yards and gardens. Emergent readers have an opportunity to learn about these bugs with a delightful new series called "Let's Read About Insects." Here are some of nature's creepy crawly wonders in all their glory. Bright, full-color photos and age-appropriate text combine to provide young children with quite a lot of information in a way that will engage their interest. "To a bee, a flower is like a grocery store." Children can certainly relate to the grocery store metaphor. This sentence may amuse them and capture their attention from the get go. Text is on the left-side pages, and close up photos of bees are on the right. Children will observe workers, drones and a queen bee, "rooms" in a hive, the bee's life cycle, parts of the body and more. Young readers will want to return to this book again and again, first with a reading companion, and then on their own as reading skills develop. Learning will continue in backyards and gardens wherever small children are found. A glossary, index, and places to go for more information are provided in the back of the book. 2004, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 3 to 7.

Gr 1-4-Each of these small-format, easy-to-read titles describes the life cycle of an insect often found in the backyard. Accurate information is provided on the stages of the creatures' lives from egg to larva to pupa and their emergence from the pupa to find a mate or food in order to survive and to complete the cycle. Each spread includes a full-page picture opposite a page of large-print text. The vivid close-up photos that help tell the story will appeal to young readers. Basic information for libraries and classrooms needing easy nonfiction.-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
