This book was an excellent "living book" that tied in nicely with our nature study on dragonflies. I used it as a read aloud before we went on a nature walk. The book is beautifully illustrated and the kids learned a lot.

I really enjoy this series. Such interesting drawings of the dragonfly shedding its skin. And I had no idea that dragonflies lived in the water for two years before coming out to live on land. Wow.
