Don’t Squash that Bug! The Curious Kid’s Guide to Insects (Lobster Press) by Natalie Rompella will inspire budding entomologists to look for creepy crawlies in the coming warmer months. The author, a former nature museum curriculum coordinator, engages young readers and gets them thinking with her direct and concise text. A glossary lets children familiarize themselves with keywords before reading the book. Colour photographs and text boxes make for an attractive and eye-catching guide which really brings the subject to life. mRb
