Budding entomologists will be eager to try the techniques in this introduction to insects. Covering an array of commonly-found bugs such as ants, caterpillars, beetles, dragonflies, earwigs, and bees, author Steve Voakes presents intriguing facts about each (such as how ants communicate via antennae) and advice on how to observe them (such as burying a jar in the ground and later checking it for beetles). Throw in the large, attention-grabbing illustrations, and you've got one enticing read! Oh, and don't worry -- young scientists are cautioned to observe carefully, and to let all insects go after studying them
