    Not just I, but my four-year-old grandson as well enjoyed this book, especially "the bug with pokies" on the front cover. I never did find a picture of the bug from my back yard I was trying to identify via this book, and there sure did seem to be a lot of flies compared to other orders of insects. But maybe I'll hit pay dirt via some of the bug identification sites listed in the back of the book.

    I use the book as a pictorial resource for my preschool students. Children are often fascinated by insects and Marshall's guide is perfect for exposing them to some of the vast diversity in the insect world. We don't usually use the book as a field guide, but the brilliant and detailed photographs make the book accessible to pre-readers. Plus, the captions are short -- offering tidbits of info for inquiring young minds.
