We read this for part of our Lightning Lit program The little boys ages 10 and 7 really liked it It s a fun way to learn about insects and how to find them Perhaps not the best book about the subject, but a very nice one The illustrations were very lovely, but sometimes you want to see an actual picture of one in order to help you identify it so we looked them up online later.

    17. Notes this book would have worked better as a story not a non fiction type book art is too vague and scribbly and light colored to have great kid appeal my kids thought this book was boring and prefer looking at field guides filled with real life photos
