This book received the Newberry Medal Award. This book was written to be read aloud by two people. At times, the readers were to read together and at times they each had their own lines. It is a collection of poems celebrating the insect world. It discusses fourteen different insects. Each chapter shares a day in the life of whatever insect it is discussing. It makes for a joyful and melodic book! I could use this book in science to teach students about these insects. I could use this book to look at and analyze this particular poetry style. It could be used to teach students teamwork by having them read together. This technique could really help students improve their reading skills by having to read with a partner!
