"Norwood House Press has updated and revised their iScience series. It now focuses on the use of scientific inquiry with each title connecting to the real world through puzzles, questions, and activities. In this particular title, fluent readers are introduced to the differences and similarities between insects and how to identify them through inquiry. With the use of diagrams, explanatory photographs, excellent organization of information, a glossary, and opportunities for further learning, these titles surpass the expectations of well-constructed nonfiction materials for young readers. Of particular note, these titles provide connections to everyday life, but also creates an inquiry approach to learning that many will find intriguing. This is a wonderful series that should be considered as a primary acquisition for an elementary library that seeks to update their collection." –Irving Independent School District
