Overview

By now you've probably heard that bees are disappearing--but they aren't the only species at risk. Populations of fireflies, butterflies, and ladybugs have all been declining in recent years, too. This middle grade nonfiction explains the growth, spread, and recent declines of each of these four types of insects. Exploring human causes, like the Baltimore electric company that collected fireflies to attempt to harness their phosphorescent lighting source, to natural occurrences, like the mysterious colony collapse disorder that plagues bee populations, master nonfiction storyteller Mark Kurlansky shows just how much bugs matter to our world.

In this book by Mark Kurlansky, he tackles a topic that is on one hand familiar to young kids yet the information contained between the covers may not be. As an educational tool, it works well but with a few pictures in color, it would have more appeal to kids who are used to playing games on their iPhones. Besides it’s use in the classroom, I can envision a presentation by an entomologist at the local public library. I received a free book from NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving my review.
