About this title


These unique insects get their name from the position in which they hold their front legs together. These legs are also preying as they shoot out and grab insects for the mantis to eat. Students will learn about the other physical characteristics of praying mantises and how they use each body part.


This series, with its large, color photographs and brief sentences with frequently occurring common words, will appeal to early readers. New or scientific words appear in bold-face throughout the text and in the glossary. Every page is numbered and supports learning through vivid photographs and easily read text. This series offers both informational content about insects and a structural introduction to book navigation. Early readers will master basic nonfiction book navigation while learning interesting facts, with words and pictures, about insects in our world. --Library Media Connection
