This is the third book in the delightful nature series by Carolyn and John Sills that I have reviewed here on Chat With Vera. This very talented team brings to the young child information that they can understand without compromising the scientific accuracy. The illustrations are beautiful and so very accurate.
Again, the book design is simple. A large picture on the right hand page showing detailed physical characteristics and simple text on the left page with short descriptive scientific title or clue. In the back of the book there is an afterward that revisits each crustacean giving more detail and information.
The young reader will learn what crustaceans look like, what they eat, where they live.
The book can be read to the very young child or the older reader can delve into it himself. A treasure to have tucked on a shelf ready for the inquisitive youngster to while away an afternoon learning while he is having fun. I highly recommend this set of books for the home library as well as the school library.
