This is a fun, fascinating look at insects the young reader will enjoy. This is the Spanish edition, but can be shared by all in the homeschool or classroom setting. Confident readers can tackle this beginning nonfiction book with ease while the newly independent readers can work through this chapter book with a bit of assistance. The layout is vibrant and there are full-color photographs of each insect being discussed. There are captions that add additional information. For example, when we take a look at a grasshopper we learn that "El saltamontes mueve las antenas." This is one in the series, Conoce los grupos de animales. In the back of the book is an index, a glossary, and additional recommended book and website resources to explore.
