Good gift for a kid...Really! Mar 6, 2007
I bought this for my 6 year old nephew. He reads far above his grade level so I certainly do not recommend this for all kindergardeners. But it is simple, to the point and has great pictures. For kids who love bugs this is a great book.
totally useless Aug 20, 2003
if you are interested in spiders, this is NOT the book for you. If you are interested in anything else, this is NOT the book for you. Spend the big bucks and get a real book on spiders. This is a waste of time. there are only 4 spiders in it!!!! very annoyed.
Good pictures, consider it is a pocket guide. Jan 15, 2002
Yeah, the pictures on this book are great, but dont ever forget that it is a pocket guide, so you wont find any insect, you will find common ones, but even some common insects are not listed, anyway it is a good book for begginer in order to learn the difference among different insect orders.
I consider it a good book for experts on the matter to because of the detailed and colorful photos.
Scintillating overview of amazing insect creatures!!! Jul 4, 1999
This book is a must have for all die-hard insect fanatics. A triumph
