Book Review

Highly engaging photography supports basic information, making this set a good fit for preschoolers and new readers. Short, simple sentences offer readability rather than drama; the excitement comes from the crystal-clear photographs. Large main images include full-body views and extreme close-ups that highlight different features of each insect. In Grasshoppers, for example, an up-close photo of a spitting grasshopper is followed by a riveting view of the insect’s takeoff, and another page turn captures it in mid-flight. Sequences in which larger animals threaten insects are less successful, since no true interaction is shown in the photos. For the most part, though, the use of minimal text and carefully selected, high-quality photographs is just right for the intended audience. VERDICT Wonderful choices for this age group. —School Library Journal
