Vocabulary words are defined along the bottom margin and ther eis a detailed index. For extra fun, four buggy craft projects are included. Add this to a reading list for an elementary unit ...more

Bought this book for my 10 year old daughter today. She read it on the way home, and mentioned to me that it was nice. (She also spouted off some insect facts she learned from the book.) I decided to give it a try for myself, and found it to be a fairly decent little book about insects.

Too small to be chock full of details, but it is full of nice color photos of many insects.
This books had great colorful images that can get children attracked about the world of insects. the type of language been used in the book is not hard to understand. Meaning that children in the third to fifth grade can easily read this book.
This reminds me of my great childhood summers.
