Synopsis: Provides readers with an up-close examination of many insects in their early and formative stages, including grubs that transform into beetles and maggots that mature into flies.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6-The life cycles of close to two dozen kinds of insects are examined here. Two color-coded sections profile representative insects that undergo simple and complete metamorphosis. The major sections have a preface describing common characteristics of nymphs and larvae, respectively. The text is meticulous in its descriptions of individual species' life cycles; it describes roughly where and when the insects lay their eggs; the average time it takes them to hatch; the average number of molts, etc. Sharp color photographs accompany the text on about every other page. Most are well-composed close-ups; about a dozen are nearly full page. Many featured insects are shown in both their immature and mature forms. Sidebars offer miscellaneous facts. Ron and Nancy Goor's Insect Metamorphosis (Atheneum, 1990) and Sandra Markle's Creepy, Crawly Baby Bugs (Walker, 1996) cover similar material and offer more photographs; however, their coverage of metamorphosis is general, whereas Stewart's book offers more specifics on individual species. This lucid, well-organized introduction will serve as an excellent companion to the Goor and Markle standards.
