Review
(The following is a combined review for Hornets: Incredible Insect Architects; Luna Moths: Masters of Change; Praying Mantises: Hungry Insect Heroes; and Termites: Hardworking Insect Families) Gr 2–5— These books will please report writers, budding entomologists, and anyone who expects children's nonfiction to be as carefully documented as adult nonfiction. Built on an effective formula, each title begins with a page clarifying what an insect is, then moves on to name and describe its exterior and interior body parts, its life cycle, and its behaviors. A comparison with similar insects, a glossary, suggested books and Web sites, and activities round out each volume. The books are notable for the sharp photos placed precisely to enhance understanding. A diagram of internal organs is simple, well labeled, and approved by an expert on the featured insect. The main texts are clear and flow well, while tidbits framed in black hexagons add punch for those drawn to snappy facts. The two activities in each book range from testing your reflexes for comparison with those of a striking praying mantis to making paper like a hornet. Luna Moths and Hornets are the only full texts available at this level on these insects. Termites and Praying Mantises have competition from other publishers but hold their own well. Purchasers should note that Termites is about African mound-building termites, not the common American varieties. There is also one minor error in Termites , an incorrect accent for the word metamorphosis. In all, these books are both professional and appealing.—Ellen Heath, Easton Area Public Library, Easton, PA --Ellen Heath (Reviewed February 1, 2008) (School Library Journal, vol 54, issue 2, p106)
