ALA Booklist
As the series title suggests, these new books in the Backyard Safari series offer a hands-on, practical point of view on discovering local insects, mollusks, and worms. The first part of each book offers information on the life cycle and anatomy of the title creature, so brief that it sometimes feels abbreviated. In Dragonflies, various cultures' interpretations of dragonflies could use a bit more explanation. That said, these limited descriptions do allow more space for three hands-on sections: "You Are the Explorer" offers practical instructions and tips for finding and observing the title creatures; "A Guide to . . ." provides characteristics and about a dozen pictures to help readers identify common North American varieties of each creature; and a final section suggests additional projects such as creating a garden to attract the creatures. Regardless of whether readers actually carry out the observations and experiments, these books offer an accessible, engaging introduction to these elements of science.
