Synopsis: "Paul, 10, is fascinated by insects, an interest engendered by his father, Henri Fabre, who has studied the creatures for most of his life. The boy and his two younger sisters help Père gather material for a textbook, often accompanying him on field trips into their untamed backyard...Admirable."-School Library Journal

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-6. Paul, 10, is fascinated by insects, an interest engendered by his father, Henri Fabre, who has studied the creatures for most of his life. The boy and his two younger sisters help Pere gather material for a textbook, often accompanying him on field trips into their untamed backyard. Children of Summer briefly describes over a dozen of their scientific adventures from altering the path of a group of pine caterpillars, to studying the behavior of undertaker beetles and ground wasps. There is much that is admirable in this slim title. The text is clearly written and the material on insect behavior is intriguing, particularly the responses of various species to the experiments. Soft pen-and-pencil drawings of the family and the small creatures they study, plus the occasional silhouette, evoke the book's 19th-century French setting. Henri Fabre's voice dominates the narrative; Paul merely passes on his father's observations and findings. Indeed, several of the short chapters included are straight reminiscences of the man's childhood?e.g., how Henri taught himself to read and how his duck-herding activities inspired his love of nature. In the original works on which this title is based, the 10 volume Souvenirs Entomologiques, Fabre himself spoke directly to his readers in a charming, if verbose style. Anderson's book will nonetheless appeal to serious young naturalists curious about the work of a famous and idiosyncratic scientist.?Karey Wehner, San Francisco Public Library
