Editorial Reviews

Clearly written and should guide the child to a number of insights into insect structure and behavior.

— Science Books and Films

Activities designed to observe bugs in nature emphasize studying insects without harming them or removing them from their habitats.

— Horn Book Guide

The series encourages children to become close observers of nature and also provides step-by-step experiments and activities to perform. Hickman has done a good job of finding interesting tidbits of information and making comparisons. The type is large, and the colorful drawings are attractive.
