The pen and watercolor illustrations give this book a "science journal" feeling and the spots of color throughout add to the text. This would make a great addition to any program about insects. It would also be a good recommendation for a child who shows an interest in insects. The story describes insect life going on around us daily. In smaller text, are specific facts about the insect being described. The back of the book includes a small index and some activities to try out being a real life insect detective.
