Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Bugs that walk on water. Bugs that consume billions of tons of dung a day. Bugs stealthy enough to steal prey from a spider web. Bugs that can grow to 2,700 times their original weight in just two weeks. Bugs that can reattach their own limbs—even a severed head.

Bringing the weird world of Bugs to your fingertips, Fandex presents a field guide that marries vivid photographs of these beautiful and complex creatures with fascinating facts, stats, and lore about 47 insects, spiders, and other arthropods. (Arthropod: an invertebrate animal with a segmented body and jointed limbs—and the most diverse and plentiful group of animals ever to walk the earth.)

"The Bugs Fandex"
(Workman Publishing)
------------------------------------
This is a fun, graphically striking educational tool, a "fandex" in which attached pages fan out from a central spoke, and each page gives information about a specific insect or bug. It's a nice educational item -- each page has information on the front and back, and while the text is densely packed, it is well balanced with the graphic design, in which the legs and antennae of various species poke out from the upper edges. As a field guide it may have limited uses, though... Many of the bugs are fairly common -- praying mantis, ants, etc. -- while others, which are chosen for their wow factor (like the scarab beetle) are unlikely to be found on your average field trip. Also, the uneven, unusual, multiple edges of the unique pages can make it difficult to put the pages back in place once the fan has been unfurled. This is certainly true for smaller children, so it might be frustrating if used out in the real world. For at-home use, though, this can be a lot of fun. The visual element is quite strong, and the information behind it seems pretty solid. (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain children's book reviews)

My 5 year old boy never seemed particularly interested in bugs, but when he got this as a gift, he loved the facts and close up pics. He especially liked the "scary" ones to show his sister. He liked it so well that he took it to show and tell for kindergarten :-)

I bought this for my 3/4 grade but the reading level is a little high and the print a little small for my students.

This was a gift for a young child interested in insects. I wanted a picture guide of durable material. This is just what I wanted.

The children I teach are so fond of this Bug Fandex. We read about a different bug each day. They can't wait to hear more. They really the pictures of each bug too.
