"About Insects: A Guide for Children" by Cathryn Sill and Illustrated by John Sill

ISBN-13: 9781561452071
Publisher: Peachtree Publishers, Ltd.
“About Insects: A Guide for Children” by Cathryn Sill.  This book is one of a series of books that Cathryn Sill has done.  I love them because of the simple informative text and the captivating illustrations by John Sill.  These books are loved by primary children for the life like depiction in the illustrations. The illustrator clearly pictures the insects in life like situations that are captivating for all to look at.

I also believe these books can be helpful to middle grade students for the information contained.  I especially like the section in the back of the book that gives more detailed information and which could be used by parents when discussing the book or by older readers doing research on this topic.  These books are a great addition to any library. (reviewed by Claudette Delorge, Librarian)

(Another review) This is a captivating book about insects for primary children. The illustrations are very colorful and enjoyable. The content is very accurate and interesting. I do feel it would captivate the interest of primary children. The afterward section adds a lot of additional information for the adult reader to share. I would recommend this book for primary children studying insects. (reviewed by S.Racke, elementary teacher)
