From School Library Journal:

Starred Review. Kindergarten-Grade 3—"Listen—over by the fence./Can you hear a scratching sound?/A wasp is scraping away at/the post with her strong jaws./She's collecting wood." Thus begins this charming collaboration that gently encourages young readers to explore their natural surroundings and observe some of the more commonly found insects in it. In spare prose, brief facts about a variety of creatures, such as leaf-miner caterpillars, ground beetles, ants, earwigs, and dragonflies, are shared, as are hints on where and how to find them. Large print tells the main story with small print providing further details or interesting facts, giving an opportunity for deeper exploration. Simple but elegant pen and watercolor illustrations show the creatures in their habitats, going about their daily business. Shared aloud or read alone, this child-friendly title is a wonderful introduction to the insect world. Pair it with a wide variety of informational books to garner children's interest and excitement.—Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA
