I am not a fan of bugs and not a huge fan of poetry but I truly enjoyed this book.  The book contains many interesting photographs and facts and very eye catching illustrations too.  The book is set up like a museum and it is easy to read through the exhibits.  This book is a great combination of poetry and non-fiction and I would recommend it to all students.  For more information about this book, please see the web resources below.
