My kindergartener is very interested in bugs right now and was fascinated by this story of Jean Henri Fabre. I do think this is a better book for older children but since she is so interested in the subject she happily listened to this whole book.
This book is written in story/narrative format and my boys loved it! We have a few of Jean-Henri Fabre’s insect books, so it was extra interesting to read this story. As soon as we finished, my boys ran out the door to track down some insects. The art work is fantastic!
The pictures and color of the illustrations are lovely and the story-like telling of the biography of Jean-Henri Fabre draws you in. It is perfect for the whole family!
Interesting look into the life of Jean-Henri Fabre. It was so great to read how a simple curiosity, carefully nurtured, grew and developed into a love for and expertise in science and nature. This book is engaging and beautifully illustrated.
This book made it fun to learn about Jean-Henri Fabre. The illustrations are gorgeous and it’s fun to see the bugs creeping and flying through every page. Fabre is a wonderful example of hard work, determination and following your passion.
Nearly 200 years ago, a curious little boy named Jean-Henri wandered the hills around his cottage in the French countryside, fascinated with the wonderful world of insects around him. With vibrant illustrations, this book tells the inspiring story of one of the greatest naturalists in history. Learn how little Jean-Henri turned into a man whose love of nature, love of God, hard work, and constant curiosity has inspired generations.
