PressestimmenTerrific... The photos are a pleasure to look at, and the small amount of information given with each adds up to a lot of painless learning. There is a lovely contemplative quality to this work... This would be a great book to have in any elementary school classroom and in any biology or entomology library. It is a good book to buy for the budding young naturalist in your life. It also is an excellent reference work and could be inspiration for artists.--Linda Wiener, St. John's College, Santa Fe, NM"Science Books & Films" (06/01/2009)
