Review of Caterpillars, Bugs & Butterflies


I still remember the school garden full of butterflies, grasshoppers, crickets and other insects. Caterpillars, Bugs & Butterflies (Take Along Guides) is a book for children written by Mel Boring. Born in 1939, Mel Boring is an American children's author. He is specialized in non-fiction and a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

This is another quality book from Cooper Square Publishing Llc . The pictures are large enough to study the insects. This guide is particularly suitable for kindergarten student, but the recommended age group is 9-12. Some activities are also suitable for six to seven years old children.

The book helps to get acquainted with 8 caterpillars, 12 bugs and 10 butterflies and moths. This book invites young naturalists to spot wildlife and gives basic information about insects, caterpillars, and butterflies. The book also includes identification information, educational activities, and fun facts. Safety tips are also provided. Suggested interesting activities are suitable for children of six to seven years old. Color illustrations have enhanced the presentation. Some quick facts including when and where you are most likely to observe each species worth appreciation. Interesting facts about each species is written in different font and color at the bottom of the page.

“Make Moth Sugar” includes a recipe, an attractive treat to attract moths. The tomato hornworm, banded woolly bear caterpillar and ladybug sections are excellent. How to pages are suitable for children and attractive too.

This book can be used as a "field guide". With bright and colorful pictures, short accurate explanations of the animal, their habitat, eating habits, and even some of the popular stories that go along with the animal have added pleasure to read, such as the myth about the stripes on the wooly bear caterpillar in relation to the length of winter.

Appropriate warning for studying certain animals has given. The most important thing is many of these insects can be found in back yard for further study. Caterpillars, bugs, and butterflies are separated into sections dealing with each type. At the end of each section there is a project that children can basically do on their own.

For identifying caterpillars this book is satisfactory, but not up to the mark as many of the states have much more species than the species mentioned here. The author has balanced the content by picking the most popular bugs. Though the text is fairly small the illustrations are so good that they can hold the young readers’ attention.

I didn't get this book for free to write a review, I bought it for my five years old daughter.
