Butterfly, Flea, Beetle, and Bee: What Is an Insect?

Butterfly, Flea, Beetle, and Bee: What Is an Insect?

by Brian P. Cleary, Martin Goneau (Illustrator)

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
To be an insect, the creature must have six legs and be in three parts including the thorax, abdomen, and head. The book goes on to describe these parts and explain the growth stages as well. Colorful names identify the variety of insects and some lesser known facts accompany it. The word insects appears in bold-face, black print to reinforce the word while animated characters and settings present this book in a fun, educational format even though sometimes the characters are over the top. The only criticism is the lack of a glossary for such words as metamorphosis or exoskeleton. Otherwise this books needs to be a part of any library where young people want to learn more about insects. The last two pages give an organized summary of all the significant facts found throughout the book and could be used for any science report. This book is part of series "Animal Groups are Categorical." Reviewer: Julia Beiker
