Booklist - Daniel Kraus

"Photography is central to Heinemann’s books for preschool readers, and the marvelous extreme close-ups that fill the Comparing Bugs series do not disappoint. Using a classic picture-on-top, text-on-the-bottom format, each title begins with a "Meet the Bugs" chapter before examining the insects’ fascinating (and rather icky) habits. Bug Babies dares to ask: Is there anything cuter than insect babies? Actually, everything is cuter. Gelatinous balls, honeycomb-like bunches, and the white pellets of eggs are shown in all their grody glory. Some babies, it is pointed out, look like their parents, while others (like the ladybug) resemble entirely different animals. For awhile, Bug Food peacefully observes the acrobatic leaf-munching of ants and caterpillars, and then we get to the chapter entitled "Blood and Poo." Possibly the most surprising photo in the series is of a mouse being eaten by a huge centipede. Spiders’ tunnel-shaped webs and termites’ mud towers make Bug Homes a bit of a revelation. Nowhere is the photography more impressive than in Bugs on the Move, where flea jumps, grasshopper hops, and beetle scampers are caught midact. That these fascinating creatures aren’t always named is a bit of a disappointment, but still, this will elicit plenty of wows. And yucks. –Daniel Kraus Booklist June 2010" - Booklist

Arlington Independent School District - Carol Howard

"Bugs on the Move by Charlotte Guillain is a book about comparing how bugs move from one place to another for example some run, some fly and others crawl. This boo k would work well with a classification lesson for Pre-Kindergarten or kindergarten class. Some features included bright colorful photos of bugs in action, bold text, index, notes to parents and teachers for before and after reading, and a word count. This book is a part of the Comparing Bugs series other titles in series are Bug Babies, Bug Food, Bug Homes, Bug Parts and Bug Senses. Good addition to collection. –Carol Howard, School: Morton Arlington Independent School District4/7/2010" - Arlington Independent School District

Library Media Connection - Amy E. Parker

"This series introduces young readers to the similarities and differences of bugs using large color photographs to enhance the text. Pre – and post – reading activities are suggested for parents and/or teachers to use with children. The visual appeal and repetitive text make this series an appropriate choice if your collection is lacking in primary books about insects. Glossary. Table of Contents. Index. Amy E. Parker, Director of Lower School Library Services, Second Baptist School, Houston, Texas Library Media Connection August/September 2010" - Library Media Connection
