Product description

From School Library Journal

Gr 1-3-This well-written and informative book introduces budding entomologists to the world of insects and bugs. Rockwell offers basic factual information in an interesting, easy-to-read format. Common insects are introduced, and the main differences between insects and spiders are explained as well as what makes a bug a bug. The collage illustrations are beautifully rendered with layered colored papers of a variety of textures that add both depth and details to the creatures. The honeybee looks extremely lifelike with a fuzzy body and legs, and the illustration of a multihued birdwing butterfly accurately and attractively shows it sucking nectar from a flower. An index identifies the types of insects and other bugs that are found in the book, and some projects are suggested for those interested in learning more about insects. A strong title for both school and public libraries.

From Booklist

Ages 5-8. OK, so a bug is a bug is a bug. Well, not according to this entry in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out-Science series. Children will learn what makes a bug a bug and a beetle a beetle, and why butterflies and water striders are considered insects but spiders, daddy longlegs, and ladybugs aren't. The spare, carefully written text makes the distinction between insects and bugs quite clear, and the paper-cut illustrations don't overwhelm with tiny details. Young naturalists will also get some well-illustrated instruction on how to examine their own backyard insects and determine what they have found. The "Find Out More about Insects" section at the back offers other ideas--among them, making an insect calendar and planting a garden to attract butterflies. A key to the creatures in the illustrations (none of which are labeled) is appended, but there's still going to be some guesswork for younger children when several different insects appear on a spread.
