A superb classroom resource…
In his latest, Kurlansky takes the reader through the history of different species of bees, butterflies, and beetles and discusses immense decline in their population in recent years. Divided into five parts, the book covers a detailed introduction to the insect world with descriptive chapters on bees, butterflies, and beetles and sheds light on the devastative impact of human involvement on survival of individual species. The slow pacing and the straightforward, matter-of-fact prose make the book more suitable for mature readers (considering the book is aimed at middle-grade readers) though. Complete with eye-catching illustrations, this informative book will appeal to children interested in extensive scientific facts. Recommended for library shelves!
