Reviews & Summaries
The poetry is lovely as well, and the science facts with each spread often contribute to the enjoyment. Prime example: Song of the Water Boatman and Backswimmer's Refrain. Once you understand how different the two insects are, the poem resonates on another level. Diving Beetle's Food-Sharing Rules will remind you of that joke about "toddlers' rules of ownership" (that morphs into "part of microsoft's business plan" :^).
