About this title


With their alien appearance and odd ways, mantids are fascinating to watch. Learn how these insects catch their prey and follow their life cycle from egg to adult. Experiments and activities provide a chance to watch mantids up close and gain deeper understanding of their ways.


"Readers get a virtual bug's-eye view of the natural world in these beautifully photographed, succinctly written introductions. Both titles are well organized, with terms defined as they appear. However, it is the photography that is the highlight here. Different-sized, sharply focused pictures complement the text on almost every page; many are remarkably detailed, extreme close-ups of flower or insect anatomy... With their excellent photography, crisp texts, and intriguing activities, both titles will be useful additions to most natural-history sections."
--School Library Journal (March 2004) (School Library Journal 20040301)

"Each book in the series features solid information, excellent photography, and genuine inquiry investigations. The books are ideal for teachers and students in the middle level. These well-written books are sure to generate interest in real and intriguing scientific explorations."
-- ScienceScope (Febraury 2003) (Science Scope 20030201)

"Good photos and activities and experiments suited to students in the early elementary school grades are the best features of this book."
-- Science Books & Films (January-Febraury 2002) (Science Books & Films 20020201)
