Grade 4-8AStep-by-step drawing lessons for over 80 insects and other creepy crawlies such as millipedes, ticks, and spiders are featured in this carefully constructed drawing book. All of the examples are done in pencil. A discussion of materials needed is included in the preface. Readers are invited to observe the drawings before starting and are given specific written instructions. Basic information such as the order and family of each creature and where it may be found is provided. This additional material makes this book more useful for both observations of insects and for report writing than other titles currently available. It's more complete than Lee J. Ames's Draw 50 Creepy Crawlies (Doubleday, 1992) and more inclusive than Christine Smith's How to Draw Insects (G. Stevens, 1997).AKathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn,
