I mainly liked this book because it was overall intriguing even for someone who is not interested in bugs or learning about insects. One reason I liked this book is because of the author’s writing. The rhyming of words makes for a story that flows and engages the reader. Another reason I enjoyed this book is due to its language, which is very descriptive. The author includes language that is informative for young readers, in that he labels the body parts of different insects and describes their use. For example, a cricket is shown on one page, with the body parts: head, thorax and abdomen clearly labeled and described. Overall this book includes a significant amount of information while not being overwhelming for an elementary reader. The big idea of this book is to inform readers about several different types of insects and what makes them unique. ( )

Summary of Book:
The Cat in the Hat takes his friends Sally and Nick on an insect adventure. On their adventure they discover all different types of insects and learn interesting facts about the insects they encounter. The rhyme and rhythm of the book make it a fun learning adventure.

Personal Reaction:
My kids really enjoy The Cat in the Hat Knows a lot About That book series and I really enjoy reading them aloud. They are written in a fun,rhythmic way that you would expect from a Cat in the Hat book but are packed with a ton of great information. I always seem to learn some things myself! I had no idea only the female mosquito stings when it bites!

Extension Ideas:
1. Print a picture of an insect. Have the students color the insect and label the different parts of the insect (head, thorax, abdomen).
2. Discuss the characteristics of an insect. Give the students pictures of different types of insects and spiders. Have the students determine if the object in the picture is an insect.

Find out all you ever wanted to know about insects when the Cat and company get an up-close view of life as a bug. Kids will learn how insects — from the spittlebug to the honeybee to the moth — see, smell, communicate, and pollinate, as well as sometimes pester and amaze and generally make life better for us humans.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679873031, Hardcover)

A hilarious introduction to the insect world, On Beyond Bugs will have your preschooler giggling away while learning all kinds of interesting entomology facts. Answering questions like "why do flies buzz?" and "how do bees communicate?" in the musical rhymes long associated with him, Cat in the Hat makes a delightful tour guide. Who else could manage "ants are so strong they can lift things that weigh over ten times their weight and they do it each day?" The sturdy, easy-to-clean-cover makes this book a good choice even for very young children. For those just beginning to read, the phonics-based repetitions are a big help. (Preschool to early reader) --Jill Lightner
