ALA Booklist
Detailed, glossy photos get up close and personal with a number of egg-laying insects and are the prime selling feature of the Changing Animals series. Though light on text, these overviews of the early life stages of several critters provide a solid first look for elementary-school readers. Like dragonflies, young grasshoppers are called nymphs, and Becoming a Grasshopper discusses the process by which nymphs eat, molt, and grow. The information provided is introductory ere's no mention of differences between species, and the facts are fairly general t a wide variety of close-up photos provide plenty of details of all phases of the life cycles discussed and will surely be enough to spur curious budding entomologists toward more comprehensive texts.

The clean layouts include copious white space surrounding the text on the verso and one large, clear photo on the recto of each inviting spread. Additional facts are appended. Glos., ind.
