Everyday Insects

"'The World of Insects' is a four volume series of 32-page books focusing upon the world of insects and is written at a first to second grade reading level, with a narrative text designed to interest children from kindergarten through the sixth grade....An outstanding series for young readers 'The "World of Insects' is a very highly recommended addition for school and community library reference collections and supplemental reading lists." —Children's Bookwatch, 01/08 "If you are teaching a unit on insects, you will not want to miss this series, now expanded to 12 books. It is ideal for Grades 3 and 4, but contains useful information for higher grades as well. Material is presented on two-page spreads dominated by fabulous photographs and illustrations. The large print makes it easy for young readers to follow. This is a beautiful series of books." —Professionally Speaking, 09/07 "Supporting age-appropriate text are well selected photographs and graphic illustrations. Close-up photography helps readers visualize the information and makes it more interesting. The book format is easy for young hands to manage with easy-to-read text and titles. Within the content are interesting facts that could support additional projects or serve as topics for research to enrich the curriculum. This volume in the World of Insects series would be a good resource for both independent reading and group discussion for animal or environmental studies.
