Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Among the many activities included in this practical guide to observing insects and understanding their behavior are directions for making a "pooter," insect aquarium and ant farm. Awe youngsters with the close close-ups of insects-in whole or part-that only scanning electronic microscopes or their ilk make possible.
School Library Journal
These new series entries are sure to attract browsers and students researching assignments. Each double-page spread consists of concise, yet lively and readable text and numerous excellent quality, full-color, captioned photographs, drawings, and diagrams. Technical words are defined in context, eliminating the need for a glossary. The history and types of currency around the world are explored in Money, including modern finances such as credit cards. Fish and Insects explore the anatomy, behavior, and ecology of those creatures, with a heavy emphasis on popular species, such as sharks. Fossil details how fossils are formed and what man has learned about life on Earth from discovering them. The sections on early paleontology, fossil folklore, and the tools of paleontology are particularly well done. Attractive additions to the nonfiction shelves. --Susan H. Williamson, Homer-Center School District, PA

It comes with a clip art cd, huge bug poster. Pictures are life like, not cartoony. The book is full of the neat facts kids like to impress others with. I paired it with one of those new gel ant farms. Huge hit.
