    Another in the series by this talented author/artist, Insectlopedia is a great adventure for adult and child alike. Children are encouraged to learn about the natural world in a series of poems and illustrations that are engaging, humorous and informative. Florian writes charming verse that informs, but even better, when read aloud, the tongue-twisting alliteration stimulates curiosity and laughter.

    Love the authors poems and paintings. They combine to showcase the poet's take on different insects.

    My reading specialist recommended this book to me for my students so I wanted to make it a part of my book collection.

    We have been checking out Insectlopedia from the library for years. My oldest could recite most of the poems in the book at one point, and would drop into spontaneous poetry recitations at a moments notice. So when I chanced to remember the book in conversation, I knew it was one I should put on our shelves permanently. It's as delightful now as it was then, and clearly we've got to get copies of all of his other poetry books soon :)

    Great Poems to read to my five year old, instead of the "normal" books. If you are running late on the bedtime, (which I do sometimes) this is a great "go to" book. Read a couple of poems for story time, and it's off to bed!

    I use this book to explore word play/poetry during our study of insects. Kids love it and stimulates their imaginations for their own insect poetry.

    Douglas Florian is awesome for poetry that kids 'get'. They are fun to read. Fun to look at.
