Bug's World – Library Media Connection
Each type of creature is introduced with its most significant attribute, such as fireflies making their own light or ants being social. Each volume includes habitat, number of species, life cycle, feeding and staying safe, body parts with a labeled picture, and an activity. The vibrant illustrations show the habitat, each stage in development, and include various species. Important concepts are illustrated as well as explained in the text, such as molting, larval and pupa stages, and spiracles. These slim volumes actually contain much of the information required for our seventh grade project, and they highlight exactly what makes each insect type special. The third grade reading level ensures that few can say it is too hard.
Bug's World – School Library Journal
The busy lives of a variety of common insects are explored in these colorful introductions. Each book describes the insects’ major physical and behavioral characteristics; some distinctive characteristics of particular groups or species; life cycle; diet; feeding habits; and defenses. Scattered throughout are sidebars with related facts in smaller print. A diagram of key body parts; directions for an easy activity. . .and miscellaneous facts are also included. All three volumes have an attractive format with layouts that are skillfully varied from page to page. The bright illustrations of the insects engaged in their daily tasks, effectively set against mostly pastel backgrounds, closely match the texts. Younger readers will find Kenney’s simpler, beautifully illustrated titles appealing.
