Amazing Crickets. M.

Jacobs, Daniel. Amazing Crickets. M. 1999.

This book has facts about crickets: their anatomy, their senses, how they sing, why they sing, and what their life-cycles are like.  The photographs may not be as richly colored as those in other insect books (neither is the subject), but for kids who want to know about the bugs they see around, this can be a good choice.

Wild Bears. I.

Simon, Seymour. Wild Bears. I. 2002.

This nonfiction book details the seven main types of bear (brown, black, polar, sun, sloth, spectacled, panda) and talks about how bears live in the wild. Popular even above its difficulty level (because it’s about bears). Lots of good pictures (of bears).
