The Beetle Alphabet Book 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
jramoly on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This is a perfect alphabet book for older students, because the information on beetles is quite detailed, with stunning illustrations. My students especially enjoy the few pages interspersed that are not about beetles, but that interact directly with the reader and add a lightness and humor to the book. Perfect for read-alouds, book walks, and research!

This book goes into sharing about the diversity of different beetles. This would be a good book to read to the class when discussing insects and bugs. The book has great illustrations of what different kinds of beetles look like, as well as, very detailed information about each beetle. I would definitely read this book in my classroom to bring more focus and detail in the area of insects and bugs. This would also be a great book for students to receive information if they were ever to write a paper on beetles.
