Enjoyable book with differentiated text. There is a read-aloud narrative in larger print, and a factual text vignette relevant to what the narrative is saying. The illustrations are very decorative and partly realistic. It could be a good experience for a read-aloud. I don't know that anyone would seek it out for facts on insects, because the outline knowledge presented is very basic. I would say almost any insect topic book, or internet page would have these facts.
The read-aloud narrative is the strength of the writing, and the almost fairy-like illustrations. The book does little to build on knowledge that might be gained by an early inquiry, or to send readers clearly outward to do or inquire more. There is a small amount of back matter, including an index--all seem like a nod to the standards and tests.
