Product Details


Product Description

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- Handsome title pages are followed by 16 equally attractive, well-laid-out pages. Each item pictured is given two pages. A detailed, blown up, full-color photo of the object appears on the left; on the right is a drawing of the photo peeled back to reveal a diagram of ``what's inside.'' Single sentences scattered around both pages point to and comment on specific parts. All this is just enough to pique the interest of young readers, who are bound to pick up information on roots or pollen, or nerves and respiration. The objects range from the well-known ladybug or tulip to the more exotic stick insect or pitcher plant. The photos of the insects are stunning in their clarity, detail, and rich color. Minor drawbacks are that the interior views are neither as complex nor as visually rich as the exteriors, relative size is not indicated, there is some repetition, and a few facts seem gratuitous. Plants concentrates on flowers, omitting seeds and trees, and doesn't use cross-sections. Although not essential, the books are attractive. --Sharon Levin, University of Vermont, Burlington

5.0 out of 5 stars Bugs Galore! Dec 18 2010
By Shela Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Purchased this book as a Christmas gift for our 8 year old granddaughter who has a quest for knowledge about all things outdoors. While I am not a great admirer of bugs, I think this little book will be a fun one to keep on hand as we plant flowers this spring and explore all that Mother Nature has to offer. The book is small, compact and has excellent pictures of all of the best creepy crawlies nature has to offer!

Don't really have much rating information except for good graphics, wide spectrum of insect information, and helpful in identifying insects in your area.
