Cricket in the Thicket by Carol Murray - ADVISABLE

Murray, Carol Cricket in the Thicket, illustrated by Melissa Sweet.  Henry Holt (Macmillan), 2017.  $18. 

Carol has paired charming rhymes with short facts about several of the different bugs that we encounter on almost a daily basis.  Sweet’s illustrations are a just-right companion to the text – I tried to imagine this with photographs, but decided I preferred the collage-like illustrations, which would be fun to emulate and have have students write new poems of their own about other bugs.
