This book tells about STINKBUGS! Yes of all the silly things that you could learn about in a book, stinkbugs. It tells about what they eat, what they look like and why they smell the way they do. Yuck! But this book is really pretty interesting and has very good color illustrations. It is also very informative. It would most certainly not be the type of book that I would normally read but if this book could catch the attention of a little boy who didn’t care for reading it might be a pretty good book in a school or classroom library.

This book would be great to use in a science lesson, on a smart board presentation, or by making some hand outs. A teacher could possible do some compare and contrast things such as a Venn diagram using the information about the stink bugs versus other bugs or other animals. If a person thought really outside the box you might could even used this in lessons in a lot of different areas.
