Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2–6—This dense yet fascinating book provides information on just about any bug one can imagine (with individual profiles on 83 different species). Budding entomologists will learn about bug life cycles, scientific classifications, communication methods, feeding habits, and much more. The book is broken down into several clearly labeled sections, and a "How to Use This Book" chapter, along with the detailed table of contents, helps readers navigate through the information. Blocks of texts are used on each page but are not overwhelming, and the language is clear and engaging. Eye-popping color photographs, diagrams, text boxes with supplemental material, and a running fact stream across the bottom of every page also help students learn as much as they possibly can about these creepy-crawlies. Features such as "Talk with an Entomologist" and "How You Can Help" provide other perspectives and allow children to recognize their own role in the life of bugs and our ecosystem. Through the extensive index, researchers can look up topics easily, but the book also lends itself to browsing or just flipping through for fun. A highly recommended work.—Rita Meade, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

My son likes the pictures and I like the reading sections. The authors pulled small sections out of the paragraphs and placed them near the pics so that I can read them as we look and then turn the pages quicker. Eventually we made spend more time on each page, but he is excited and we jump around a lot. The quality of the book is excellent. The layout and order of the book is well done. We have more complete Bug encyclopedae. But this one is the newest with the most accurate info, I am assuming. For example, the book might say that there are 1000 species of cricket.....I assume some scientist knows this info.

My main parts of the book that we like are the pictures, the quick blurbs, and the layout.

After lots of online research, I purchased this book for my 8 year old son. The photos are amazing. My son started reading it right away, and excitedly shared the insect facts he was learning with me. Very happy with this purchase. Think it would also be great to read to a younger child who was interested in insects, as s/he would really enjoy the photos.

This kid-based encyclopedia is a great resource for a budding bug enthusiast or a kid who loves animals. Targeted at a upper elementary/middle school audience, it is a book that will encourage younger siblings to take an interest in the topic, too. This is a book you'll want to engage with over several reading experiences. With its amazing photos of insects, butterflies, moths, and spiders, a younger child will turn from page to page, learning from the captions fascinating information about various insects. On further examination, your child will discover four sections that will enlighten their understanding of bugs. Its opening section on "discovering bugs" helps teach some basic biology to help develop your child's vocabulary for understanding the encyclopedia entries. The bugs are divided into two sections: "simple metamorphosis" and "complete metamorphosis" with helpful guides at the beginning of each section to help navigate through the book. The final section gives information on how to discover more information on bugs, including a glossary and index, website recommendations, movies to watch, and places to visit (insectariums, zoos, museums and butterfly gardens) around the world. The only pages in this book not containing incredible photos are the index and photo credits at the very back. Even a reluctant reader will find this book to be worth scanning and learning well researched facts.

This book is fun to read, but it's really not an encyclopedia at all and is far from comprehensive. It's an informational book about bug attributes and several different bugs. The pictures are really nice. We like to read this book, but are sticking with our field guide when we want to look up specific insects.

Our 4-yr-old daughter can't get enough of bugs! We have read this page by page and used it as a resource when she finds new bugs and wants to know more about them. The pictures are beautiful. So much detail into a world I'd rather not see, but fascinating.

The sample page showing a "Spicebush Swallowtail" actually shows a Palamedes Swallowtail. These two butterflies have obvious differences and are easy to tell apart. This may be a nice picture book but I wouldn't rely on it for accurate information.
