Zoom In on Grasshoppers

by Melissa Stewart

Part of a Series: Zoom In on Insects!.

Abundant information about grasshoppers is packed into this concise, clearly written volume. The book begins by defining words readers need to know, then delves into describing the familiar insects’ habitats, physical traits, diet, and life stages. Each spread includes a stunning, full-page color photograph as well as a smaller one in a “zoom bubble.” These striking images are well-matched with the facts presented throughout: “A grasshopper also has three small eyes. They can tell if it is day or night,” for example, is accompanied by a labeled close-up photo showing the tiny organs. A concluding page illustrates the grasshopper’s life cycle. Back matter contains lists of suggested books and Web sites for further information and an index.
