Under the Microscope: Insects: 05/03/08
Under the Microscope was a series of reference books published by Grolier Educational. We checked out the volume on Insect Homes. Scholastic has since bought Grolier and the series appears to be out of print but your local library might have a copy.
Sean liked the photographs in the book. They're vivid and often times bordering on the gross if you're squeamish about insects. We both agreed that there was too much information packed on each page (with a super tiny font). As a reference book where facts would be looked up piecemeal from the index, the book (and others in the series) would be very useful. As a book to read cover to cover in one sitting, it doesn't work. Don't be deceived by its' thin profile; the book is dense.
