Children's LiteratureLet kids go buggy with this book from the new "Bugs! Bugs! Bugs!" series. It entertains and educates. The text consists of repetitive words, many one-syllable words, and words that closely match the photos. Emergent readers or those who are a little bit behind will obtain success with this twenty-four-page format. Vivid, colorful, and highly detailed photos bring life to wasps on every two-paged spread. Some excellent photos are those of the wasp on the cover and on page five and seven. All the photos allow a close- up and personal scrutiny of creatures normally kept at a distance. The stinger and antennas are labeled in two photos, and the book's chapters are headed with large magenta print. A plethora of factual information is doled out in concise sentences. Teachers need to know that this attractive series meets the national standards "related to diversity of life and heredity." 2006, Capstone/Pebble Plus, Ages 4 to 8.
