KIRKUS REVIEW

Similar to the author's Everyday Animals (1961, p. 159, J-87) in format and readability, this small volume contains brief sketches (characteristics, habits, life cycles) of six familiar insects-- grasshopper, ladybug, bumblebee, dragonfly, wasp and butterfly. The author does not present too much detailed scientific data; her purpose was to enable children to recognize and know a bit about each insect-- she has succeeeded. Detailed, accurate and large, the pencil sketches support the explanations.
