Read in December, 2011

Genre: Informational
Summary: This title gives you a look into the interesting life of a bug. The book explores bugs, both large and small, from grubs and ants to giant cockroaches and tarantulas. As you travel through the world of bugs with the bug scientist you will learn about how bugs live, travel, eat and above all survive though the years.
Critique:
a. The pictures
b. The pictures in the book, as in many of the other scientists in the field, are outstanding. They have vibrant colors and interesting detail, ensuring that the reader will continue to turn the page. They truly make an informational book fun.
c. On one of the first pages of the book one of the pictures shows a boy participating in a cricket-spitting contest. The picture is interesting and makes you cringe all at the same time, but makes you want to read and see more.
Curriculum Connection: This book can most definitely be related to both the language arts and science curriculum areas. It provides a create connection between the two in which students can use language arts to learn more about an area of science.
