From the Publisher

Children's Literature
Engaging and intelligent, this book will capture the imagination of young readers and could foster a life-long love of science and nature. Using a question-and-answer format, the book seeks to answer such questions as "where are a snail's eyes" and "how do worms help plants grow." As the title suggests, the habits of spiders, ladybugs, grasshoppers, beetles, dragonflies, ants, bees, worms and other creepy things are explored. Each page features detailed, full-color illustrations, cartoons and photographs of the creatures in their habitats. Each section also has a "now I know" box summarizing the key points of the article and a "look and find" game that prompts students to look more closely at fascinating illustrations. A glossary at the back of the book defines bold-print words found throughout the thirty fun-filled pages. Also included is a ten-question quiz to test a student's comprehension of the entire volume. The lively writing and pictures will keep a child's interest and will be an excellent introduction or supplement to a traditional science text. It is part of the "Question Time Explore and Discover" series. 2001, Golden Books, $11.95 and $6.95. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer:Bethany Miller Cole
