Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The magnificent photographs in this book beautifully magnify the praying mantis and gives the reader an up close inspection of this unusual insect. Intended for early readers, there are approximately ten to twenty words per page. The print is large and the use of repetition helps young readers learn new words and understand the text. The content provides basic facts such as the size and color of this interesting insect. The brilliant photographs will aid the reader in understanding the text. The simple table of contents lists three chapters. The book includes a glossary, index and word list, and list of sources for additional information. It is an excellent source for introducing early readers to informational books. Additionally, the content supports national science standards, further adding to its importance and value. It is part of the "Bugs, Bugs, Bugs!" series. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 7.
