"A basic introduction to termites, examining where they live, how they grow, what they eat, and the unique traits that help to define them, such as their ability to eat through wood"--Provided by publisher.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3-A simple, clean-lined format distinguishes these introductions to common invertebrates. Throughout most of each title, a page of large-print text, set on a plain white background, alternates with a full-page, extreme close-up photo of one or more of the featured animals. Additional photos of representative species, apparently life-size, appear above or below the text. Each book succinctly outlines the animals' basic structure, key body parts, distinctive characteristics of particular species, behavior, habitats, diet, natural enemies, and life cycle. The photographs are so sharply detailed that hairs, claws, mouthparts, etc., are clearly visible; captions identify many of the species depicted by common names and offer information on characteristics. Each title concludes with directions for a simple craft, using inexpensive materials; Ants employs paper, sand, glue, and drawings to suggest an anthill, while the other projects simulate outstanding physical characteristics. Ants and Beetles compare favorably with other introductions aimed at about the same age level. Time for Kids eds. with Brenda Iasevoli's Time for Kids: Ants! (HarperCollins, 2005) and John Woodward's Beetle (Chelsea, 2010) have slightly more information on anatomy, including simple anatomical diagrams, but Bodden's titles are broader in scope and boast tighter organization and larger, sharper illustrations. As comparatively little information is available for young readers on termites and ticks, these books will be especially useful, serving as excellent first introductions to these small creatures.-Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist:

In need of a good shudder? Then join a young reader who is checking out the Creepy Creatures series. If there’s a pest you don’t wish to see, this big, bright, vivid—maybe too vivid?!—series has got it, using clear white backgrounds to showcase uncomfortably magnified photos, while the simple, educational text is artfully arranged around the page (occasionally swooping around the creatures themselves). Termites zooms in on the sometimes translucent and delicately haired insects, though the most shocking pictures are of towering, castle-like termite mounds. Each title features info on varieties, predators, and sizes, and the back matter includes a craft to make the titular animal out of household materials. Hooray? Grades K-3, --Daniel Kraus
