    Feed your child's curiosity about the natural world around them with this gentle and informative book. The book features lovely watercolor illustrations of insects and their habitats. Kids are encouraged to follow ants to see where they live and to listen to sounds like buzzing bees and watch their movements. Looking under rocks is another chance to be an insect detective! This book is full of good information that answers questions little ones may have about creepy crawlies, like what those wiggly marks are on leaves (leaf miners), and how dragonflies lay eggs in water before changing into flying creatures (metamorphosis). Good for kids' vocabulary! 30 pgs, pb.~ Sara

    While I'm certainly not a fan of insects, I found this book intriguing. It's packed with close-up, colorful photographs of fascinating and disturbing insects. The photos are the highlight of the book, but the text is very informative as well. In an easy-to-follow question and answer format, it covers insect habitats, senses, survival skills, and helpful/harmful insects. Detailed captions point out unique parts on the insects' bodies and "More Facts" boxes add even more information. So, which insects live in dead wood? How does a hornet avoid the cold? Which insect can give you blisters? Get lost in this captivating book and you'll find the answer to these (and many other) questions. By Sally Tagholm, 62 pgs, hc. ~Rachel

    This large poster classifies insects into three main categories: Prominent Wings, Wingless, and Modified Wings. The purpose of the chart is to introduce students to the various types of insects, learn the insect orders, and identify the characteristics that determine an insect's classification. For each of the three categories, colorful illustrations of several insects are displayed, listing their order with info that describes them and points out why they are classified the way they are. The bottom of the chart describes basic insect anatomy and defines some terms found on the poster. This provides a great way for students to visualize the organization of insect orders and learn how to classify insects themselves. 24" x 36". ~ Rachel
