Synopsis: Introduces various kinds of beetles, which can be seen on leaves, rocks, flowers, and in the sand, in a text that includes rebuses.
From School Library Journal: Gr 2-4-Lively texts invite readers to hunt down and observe familiar invertebrates in their own backyards. Each book begins by succinctly describing the featured animals' basic anatomy; major physical and behavioral characteristics; life cycles; diets, etc. Other chapters list appropriate clothing and gear for budding naturalists (mostly inexpensive, with the exception of a digital camera-color pencils are an alternative-and, in Dragonflies, binoculars); suggest where to find the creatures; and which characteristics to record. Also included is an identification guide, accompanied by labeled snapshots of about a dozen or more adults of representative species, and an outline of a few simple activities involving planting flowers or testing the invertebrates' response to such stimuli as different foods, water, barriers, etc. Sidebars scattered throughout offer miscellaneous facts or describe distinctive characteristics of each species. Clear, close-up color photos accompany the texts on about every other page, which includes a diagram of key body parts. Many books offer more detailed information on characteristics and life cycles, but the scope of Trueit's books is broader. Besides presenting basic information on the animals, they also introduce young readers to the scientific method-the careful collection and documentation of facts. The concept of going on an expedition, even if it is only in one's backyard, will appeal to children's imaginations. These lucid titles will also be valuable resources for teachers planning natural-history field trips.-Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.
