Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 059005483X, Paperback)

This book is part of a series of guides designed for adolescents interested in natural history and nature. The books are an excellent introduction to the Rocks and Minerals, Birds, Wildflowers, and Insects for children aged 8-18. Each guide is appropriately sized to fit in a field vest pocket. Readers who remember previous versions of these field guides from the 1970s that were dull and overly detailed will be pleasantly surprised. These books are arguably the most beautifully photographed and laid out field guides yet published for young people. Each book has an introductory section filled with interesting facts, descriptions of early naturalists, definitions of many of the terms used in the book, and a guide to using the field guide portion of the book. (...)Each field guide features 50 common species with photos and brief descriptions of many more regionally occurring insects. Brief discussions of threatened and endangered species are particularly valuable. Great first guides for children and adults with limited natural history background.

The Insect guide has excellent photographs and descriptions of common species. The photographs are very detailed and show the beauty of insects, rather than their gruesome aspects. Good descriptions and warnings regarding poisonous species. --Merri Martz
