Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Potato beetle, grasshopper, praying mantis, dragonfly, silk moth, and bumblebee...these are the stars of this non-fiction photo-journey showcasing one of kids' favorite subjects: bugs. Hatching, molting, life stages, and metamorphosis are discussed. Close-up photographs of eggs, nymphs, larvae, pupae, and adults, allow children to focus on specific stages of development. Two pages of "How & Why" questions have answers supplied so children can check their responses. Suggestions on the Activities Page include making egg carton caterpillars, raising meal worms, and charting the differences between butterflies and moths. A glossary, index, and ideas for further study are also provided. First published in 2000 by Creative Teaching Press, this book carries the Weekly Reader Seal of Approval. Some of the other titles in the 12-book "Springboards into Science" series are Animals Are Poisonous, Animals Grow New Parts, Birds Use Their Beaks, Plants Eat Insects, and Spiders Spin Silk. 2002, Gareth Stevens Publishing,
