About the Author:

Natalie now teaches elementary school and writes books for children. She has had several nonfiction books published by Pearson Scott Foresman elementary educational publishing and Reading A- Z. Natalie lives in Elgin, Illinois.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2–4—This appealing introduction to insects uses colorful photographs and a consistent layout to engage and inform readers. Youngsters will know just what to expect as each color-coded section's purpose is described in the opening pages. For example: the spread on flies identifies the "order" as Diptera, which means "two wings"; a "Don't Squash That Bug!" sidebar details the helpful benefits of flies; and "Country Cousins" discusses related insects. Other spreads include a "Where Are They?" section to describe where the creatures can be found. An excellent glossary is included. The conversational text will hold readers' interest without overwhelming them. A welcome addition to nature sections.—Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA
