My 7 year old son and I read this separately and we both really loved it! I enjoyed learning about each creature in story form and the illustrations are helpful as well. I like the hard bound cover and ribbon bookmark too. This book will be used over and over at our house.
I read this aloud to my 12-year-old daughter. She loved the fun story of the four insects and the neat way the facts were included. The illustrations are beautiful.
We bought this book to accompany our Arthropods curriculum but it has ended up a favorite for personal reading/story time. The way the author combines both science and story telling is fantastic! We learned so many NEW facts about honeybees and the illustrations are beautiful as always.
Nature Reader: Insects & Arachnids includes four stories that each follow an insect or arachnid through its entire life cycle. From the moment they hatch to their final days, come along as a carnivorous glowworm hunts for a meal through underground tunnels; a garden spider rides through the wind on a homespun parachute; a honeybee learns how to use her tongue to make honey; and a monarch butterfly finds her way to the winter home of her ancestors, thousands of miles away.
In this delightful reader, one is reminded that even the smallest of God’s creations is worthy of one’s time and consideration. There is beauty and amazement all around, and this reader will help one learn where to find it.
Hardcover, fabric bookmark, 173 pages, by Mary Adrian, Marion W. Marcher, and Paul McCutcheon Sears
