Extraordinary Insects (Crazy Creepy Crawlers) by Matt Turner –ADVISABLE

Turner, Matt Extraordinary Insects (Crazy Creepy Crawlers) 32 pgs. Hungry Tomato (Lerner), 2017.  $7.99.  Content: G.
This book contains information about a variety of insects. To highlight each insect, one page shows a large photograph and provides information tidbits and the corresponding page features a comic style layout with quite a bit more information. Some examples are the Giant Weta, Glowworms and Fireflies, Termites, and Ants. The information is interesting and geared just right for elementary age readers.
I think students will enjoy this book. It has an appealing cover, many bright clear photographs, and comic style illustrations. Best of all the information seems carefully crafted to not only appeal to student readers but to provide just enough factual information without being overwhelming.
