From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2-Fun projects that lead to an understanding of the most populous life form on Earth. In addition, children are introduced to some of the skills needed for scientific experimentation and study as they explore metamorphosis, movement, communication, feeding, camouflage, and web spinning. Beginning with a model-building activity, VanCleave helps children learn about the body of an insect and how to handle it so that follow-up explorations can proceed without harm to live creatures. Each project leads seamlessly to the next with a child wondering about some aspect of these animals, for example, "How do bugs walk on the ceiling?" A list of necessary materials, simple instructions including some labeled "Adult Step," and a brief recounting of what's been learned are included. The black-and-white illustrations with purple highlights are flat and childlike, but clear and informative. An appendix for adults summarizes the factual information in each thematic section and a thorough glossary wraps things up.
