Last year I didn't like this book so much, because Josh was looking for an encyclopedia of insects and this one doesn't compare to those. However, this is a great book for backyard bugwatching. Now we have read it again this year with Benjamin and I think it's fantastic. It shows which caterpillars become which butterflies/moths, as well as other common backyard insects. It gives good information as well as some projects.

I am not a fan of bugs, but this book contains some nice pictures and facts about different insects that kids would like. This book can be used during a science lesson about insects.

I think this book is very informational! I like the set of five books I purchased and I can see myself and my future students utilizing them in the future.

“Luna moths have no mouths or stomachs. They do not eat, and only live about one week.
Where to Find It
As soon as the female comes out of the cocoon in April or June, she searches for a tree with leaves her offspring can eat. Many different trees could be food for her caterpillars. So you may find her on walnut, hickory, oak, birch, alder, sweet gum or persimmon trees.”
“What It Looks Like
If you spot the spectacular luna moth, don't try to catch it. It is an endangered species.
The luna moth has very long tails. Its color is a glowing green, but it also has touches of purple, brown, yellow, white and gray. From wingtip to wingtip, it is a little shorter than your hand length. You may see it just beneath a streetlight, waggling its wings, as if dancing. When its long, dangling tails sway in the breeze, it looks like a little lunar-green”
