Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Here are twenty-one insect oriented art projects. Each of them is introduced with a bit of the life history of a particular insect. While these introductions are engaging, accurate, and reasonably informative, science is clearly not the focus of this book. Much more attention is paid to how to make striped felt worms, fly's eyes, a ladybug racetrack, and many other pretty objects. The book is fun, colorful, and nicely illustrated. It is a pity then that none of the projects have a deep connection with the insects they portray. Even so, the projects are great for rainy days at home. Teachers will find opportunities to combine science and art lessons without straying too far from standards. The book is one of a dozen in this series. Part of the "Arty Facts" series. 2002, Crabtree Publishing Company,
