John Himmelman is the author of several nonfiction books for children.From School Library Journal:
K-Gr 2-On a spring morning, a young pill bug and her many siblings hatch out of their mother's underbelly pouch. Her life cycle is portrayed ably enough-feeding; growing; shedding and eating her old skin; and facing dangers from insects, spiders, humans, and so on. The pill bug is shown rolling herself into a ball for protection from the likes of a harvestman (defined in the brief glossary as "a long-legged cousin of spiders") and a curious child. Finally, she finds a dead log to sleep under during the winter. Spring comes, she finds a mate, and the process begins again. An introductory sidebar explains that pill bugs are actually crustaceans, not insects. Each page offers a large, appealing illustration, drawing youngsters into the action. Although death and reproduction are briefly alluded to, they are not dwelled upon. Attractive, but not a priority purchase.-Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI
