What I Liked: I love the flexible yet sturdy pages that can withstand the wear and tear of little hands engaging with this book. There are so many wonderful photographs that it is engaging even if you don’t normally love creepy crawlies. The text features make it very easy to understand the body parts or life cycles of the creatures in question. The book does invite young explorers to take this book along as they explore nature. I love the idea of kids getting outside and getting answers to what they are seeing. The only drawback I think in using this particular book is that it is so broad that many of the cool bugs wouldn’t actually be found near them. It also seems like many of the bugs are found in North America so it wouldn’t be as helpful in other parts of the world.
Final Verdict: There are so many facts and creatures featured that it will be a text that children can keep coming back to deepen their understanding for many years. The amount of text and vocabulary used would appeal to avid bug lovers starting at four as advertised but for more casual readers it would still be appropriate at K-3rd grade easily. This is a great addition to the home or the classroom.
