About this title


Discusses how an insect scientist studies insects, and offers answers to questions, including why insects are necessary, how they are grouped together, and the tools and equipment scientists use to study them.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3 - This bland overview first outlines the basic physical characteristics of insects, their importance as pollinators, and place in the food chain. The text then generally describes, in two-page sections, where entomologists work; a few of the tools they use to collect, study, and sort insects; and some of their reasons for investigating them. Readers are then encouraged to conduct their own investigation, and are given a list of materials and guidelines for collecting insects for observation. Adequate color photographs accompany the text on almost every page; most either depict insects in their natural surroundings or show scientists examining them. Few captions are included and most of the insects shown are not identified. The simple text, while clearly written, is superficial; few details on any topic are offered and, as a result, important information is omitted. Although the book is primarily about entomologists, the term itself is not used anywhere in the text - "scientist" appears throughout. On the whole, the book presents a pretty dull picture of the field and doesn't explain why anyone would be drawn to it. - Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Library
