What to Expect When You’re Expecting Larvae

What to Expect When You’re Expecting Larvae by Bridget Heos, illustrated by Stephane Jorisch
What a great concept for a non fiction picture book!  Although only adults will get the connection to to more famous What to Expect books, the idea of telling about insect babies from the point of view of insect parents works very well.  The illustrations are cute and perfect for younger children.  Some of the information about insects is a bit gross, but that might just draw some students into this non-fiction picture book.  The facts are given in a tongue in cheek, yet informative manner and this quick read was a lot of fun. I recommend this book for all lovers of insects. This review is based on a publisher supplied electronic copy.

Until next time, happy reading, and bon voyage!
