Even though this book is being marketed as a "children's book", I found it to be very engaging and informative. I must admit to an ulterior motive in my requesting it as an ARC. That being, having not studied mythology since high school, I found myself at a loss in the category during my wife's and my nightly Jeopardy "battle". (And at local trivia nights). No more! This easy to read, well illustrated, and fun book touches just enough on each subject to allow me to triumph in the Jeopardy category now! Huzzzah!
But seriously, this would be a great little read for anyone trying to brush up on their knowledge. And enjoy themselves in the process!

I like the idea of this book. An escape room in a book where you have to find the puzzles, figure them out and pick a path to make it out of the castle. The problem was there was no real story for why you needed to escape. There was no real start point and no instructions to begin to guide you. There were answers at the end, but that just takes all the fun out of it.

My grandson loves bugs. He doesn't like when we step on anything or swat something. This book had him mesmerized. He loved learning about the various insects, especially the ones he has never heard of before. Each but gets a two page spread. There is a large color pictures of each bug so you can actually see what the bug looks like up close and personal (well not really personal as it is just a photograph). Then you learn about the bug with information such as: habitat, diet, protection, does it bite or sting etc. There are tons of facts about the bug and I learned a lot reading this book as well. There are wonderful illustrations to go along with the photos, and a fact file for each insect. While my grandson is still young and did not understand everything in the book, he loved it, asked a lot of questions and I know he would love to read it himself when he is older. I am definitely going to buy him a copy for his birthday so he will have it to read and look at as well as get the glow in the dark stickers. A great addition to a family, classroom and school library (especially for the boys and those reluctant readers). The publisher, Quarto Publishing Group - becker&mayer kids!, generously provided me with a copy of this book to read and review. The rating, opinions and ideas shared are my own.… (més)

Amazing World: Bugs by LJ Tracosas give a peek at some of the oldest and most prolific creatures in earth. Twenty different creepy-crawlies are looked at, from fireflies to mantises. Each of the animal 'snapshots’ has a picture of the bug, and gives the distribution/range, preferred diet, and defensive abilities, as well as a handful of interesting facts. My cubs and I really enjoyed reading this book. And the pictures! Absolutely stunning! Perfect for the nature-loving child, and anyone who loves bugs.

***Many thanks to Netgalley and Quarto Publishing for providing an egalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
