1. LADYBUGOLOGY: Life, Habits, Characteristics; Find, Keep, Collectect Author: Michael Elsohn Ross Category: Outdoor, Nature, Wildlife Publisher: Editions Format Soft cover ISBN-10: 1575054353 Publication Year 2000 ISBN-13: 9781575054353 Good Condition Ladybugology (Backyard Buddies) by Michael Elsohn Ross (Author), Darren Erickson (Illustrator), Brian Grogan (Illustrator, Photographer) level: Ages 4-8 Paperback: 48 pages Publisher: Carolrhoda Books (February 2000) Language: English ISBN-10: 1575054353 ISBN-13: 978-1575054353 Product Dimensions: 9.3 x 8.2 x 0.2 inches Shipping Weight: 5.76 ounces List Price: 6.95 From School Library Journal Grade 3-5. Two series entries that encourage kids to observe and inquire into the lives of some of our most commonly found creatures. Both books provide a great deal of scientific information, as do many other existing works. What makes these titles different is their aim to foster children's natural curiosity and get them to think about the world around them. Each book has a section in which elementary-school children pose questions such as "Do Caterpillars Get Dizzy?" and devise experiments to answer them. Some of the experiments prove to be inconclusive, but they still provide a solid grounding in the scientific method and encourage young readers to think for themselves. The books also provide suggestions of places, such as local nature groups, where children can obtain further information. Also included are instructions for capturing caterpillars and ladybugs for observation and a reminder to release them when the experiments are over. The books are visually appealing with clear texts and detailed drawings. Photos of kids with the insects add to the appeal. The information here is more than adequate for report needs but the books are also great for casual reading, and enterprising students might even find a few interesting science-project ideas. Good (and slightly different) additions to natural history sections. From Kirkus Reviews Ladybugs are the perfect bugs for a pet. On the creepiness scale, they are fairly benign; they're easy to identify; they neither sting nor bite; nor do they infest people's domiciles. For this entry in the Backyard Buddies series, Ross (Bug Watching with Charles Henry Turner, 1997, etc.) includes some good facts about ladybugs and their care, defining their scientific names and covering some ladybug lore. Sadly, the information that will intrigue readers is lost in a muddle of mediocre experiments and what reads as filler, e.g., writing down all there is to observe about a ladybug (it's red'') may encourage scientific observation, but it may also strike some as busy work. The full- color photographs are helpful; the illustrations are sometimes informative, and other times clumsily executed cartoons. (glossary, index) (Nonfiction. 7-10).

Unfortunately, her family, friends, and schoolmates have no understanding or appreciation of Amanda's insect obsession. Luckily, Amanda meets a new friend who understands her feelings about bugs, because she feels the same way about reptiles. Watercolor and colored pencil illustrations accompany the text. No one at home or school understands Amanda Frankenstein's devotion to insects until she meets Maggie. Series: Orchard Paperbacks Illustrator: Paul Brett Johnson Height: 10.3 in. Width: 8.8 in. Thickness: 0.2 in. Weight: 4.8 oz. Publisher's Note Amanda Frankenstein's enthusiasm for insects annoys family and friends and definitely sets her apart, until she meets a girl named Maggie, who is crazy for reptiles. Industry reviews Pigtailed and bespectacled and with a freckled, round face and turned-up nose Amanda Frankenstein looks like a junior pedant. And perhaps she is. Crazy about insects, the strong-willed girl dumps her brother's fireflies out of the jar and informs him, "Bugs are people, too, you know." Amanda amasses a huge collection of bugs ("Dead ones, of course"), is proud of the number of mosquito bites on her leg (22) and utters the dramatic claim stated in the book's title. Incessantly talking about (and even acting like) various insects, she antagonizes her brother and classmates. The plot wears thin, although some of Amanda's antics are engaging and many of McDonald's (Is This a House for Hermit Crab?) lines are quite funny (when the aspiring entomologist puts her feet on the kitchen table because, she announces, butterflies have taste buds in their feet, her mother orders her to "please keep your taste buds on the floor"). Johnson's (The Cow Who Wouldn't Come Down) animated watercolor, colored-pencil and pastel illustrations depend on exaggeration f (description exceeds maximum possible length)
