Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Ladybug, a book in the "Springboards into Science Series," provides the younger reader with a factual account of the lifecycle of the ladybug. The detailed photographs that accompany the text effectively clarify the stages of ladybug life. The same pictures are used toward the end of the book as a way to help children remember the stages of the lifecycle. A glossary, a page of "insect" activities at the end of the book, and suggestions for further study support the mission of this book. While thorough in its approach, the text is not especially engaging. While this may not be a problem in the sense that this is a book created to provide specific information for young readers, this probably will not be a book that a child would wish to read again for the pleasure of it. Nevertheless, it is the type of scientific text I would expect to find in a library to aid students who need to write short reports on an insect of their choosing. 2001, Gareth Stevens Publishing,
