Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is educational (I learned some things, too!) and engaging. It tells kids what makes an insect and insect, and what true "bugs" are. My son loves it and has asked to re-read it many times.
great for k5 or 1st grader
This is an excellent reference book for my preschoolers. It is a little too complicated, but if you read only a few of the sentences on each page, use words the children understand, they can be engaged in the "story". This is particularly good with small groups, and children who LOVE science, bugs, the outdoors, etc. The insects/bugs are "common" in our backyard, so the children can identify with the pictures. Ann Rockwell has some wonderful books that are just perfect for preschoolers through 2nd grade, such as Pumpkins and Apples, On the Beach, etc. Check those out also.
