Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In pages arranged with museum exhibits in mind, the Little Entomologist 4D series (6 titles) walks readers through the species and subspecies of different insects. Neatly laid out with at-a-glance information, clearly labeled photographs, and bite-size factoids, these volumes examine the physiology of various bugs and the evolutionary reasons behind why they look the way they do. Beautiful Butterflies explores the huge variety in these winged creatures, which are often though not always extremely colorful; the book reveals how butterflies use the designs on their wings for camouflage and defense, and explains the difference between butterflies and moths. The habitats of each subspecies are noted some can be found nearly worldwide, while others are more localized and a glossary, further reading section, and ending critical-thinking questions help reinforce the material and guide readers interested in digging deeper. Digital content, available via app, is clearly available on pages marked with a star. An efficient and practically designed entry point for budding entomologists.--Maggie Reagan Copyright 2019 Booklist"
