Another in the series by this talented author/artist,
Insectlopedia is a great adventure for adult and child
alike. Children are encouraged to learn about the natural
world in a series of poems and illustrations that are
engaging, humorous and informative.
"Mosquitoes are thin.Florian writes charming verse that informs, but even better,
when read aloud, the tongue-twisting alliteration stimulates
curiosity and laughter. Insectlopedia is fun for beginning
readers, certainly a bonus in engaging their interest in
words and images. The nonsense menu includes: the dragonfly,
the daddy longlegs, the inchworm, the walkingstick, the
giant waterbug, the termite, the locusts and the ticks.
Mosquitoes are rude.
They feast on your skin
For take-out food."
As for "The Praying Mantis":
