Reviews

A dozen denizens of the garden are introduced in brief and bouncy rhyming text and varied color photos on day-glo, cartoonish illustrated backdrops. Though there are no glossaries, labels and arrows make terms clear, but given that most of the photos are close-ups, kids might be confused about each critter's (largely unmentioned) actual size. Playful rhymes may energize a read-aloud, but sometimes lead to a confusion of words (Grasshoppers don't have ears like you, /so they won't hear you saying please./Some do have parts that work like ears, /a bit below their knees.) and forced writing (Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!/Ants like to march in line./They march through the grass/in almost no time!). There is some anthropomorphizing and opining. For example, Bees are trying to do their best, and we should all/give spiders our thanks. A Did You Know? fact, helpful index, and counting exercise or activity round out each oversized title. Overall, this eye-catching and energetic series is a fine choice if your insect collection for this age group needs updating. -- Amy Rowland, Shelter Rock Elementary School, Manhasset, NY School Library Journal, Series Made Simple 11/1/2012-- "School Library Journal"
