    Exceptionally useful and informative

    Audubon books are wonderful. They are easy to read with gorgeous photos and organized in a way that makes the creature you're searching for easy to find. This particular book I bought because my 2 year old loves bugs and because I wanted to identify a particular beetle that had invaded my house in late winter. I found the bug in just a few minutes of search. I also have the Eastern birds book and it is just as useful as this one.
    Great series!

    Good handbook

    Excellent illustrations and descriptions and a good reference tool. I wish I had gotten a more current or updated publication, but I am pleased with the book.
