In Beetles, young readers will learn to identify different types of beetles. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text will engage early readers as they discover what different types of beetles look like.
A labeled diagram helps readers identify a beetle’s body parts, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about beetles online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Beetles also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index.

Star Review. This new series provides young children an outstanding introduction to the world of insects. The carefully selected full-page illustrations, drawn from many different sources, are extremely well-done, close-up photographs of each insect, portraying their activities and the different stages of their lives. The design of the books is especially attractive and well-organized, and the text is appropriate for the intended audience. Not only are these books an excellent introduction to insects, they would also be an excellent tool for teaching young children about the parts of a book. Children will certainly enjoy these colorful, factually accurate books. Glossary. Websites. Table of Contents. Index
