I Love Insects (I Like to Read)

by Lizzy Rockwell (Author)

Reading Level: K − 1st Grade
Series: I Like to Read

If you love bugs, you will love this book! And you'll learn why they're so important! A Level G science book that's perfect for new readers!

The girl in this story loves insects--how they look, how they sound, and how they move. Her friend does not like insects--especially when they sting. Like them or not, children will learn many interesting facts, as well as why insects are essential to human survival!

This science book was written for first graders to read on their own. With beautiful and accurate illustrations, vetted by an expert.

I Like to Read: The books in the award-winning I Like to Read series are especially created for new readers and are leveled using Fountas & Pinnell standards. Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors--create original, high-quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read again and again with their parents, teachers or on their own!

For early-to-mid first grade readers, Level G books feature more complex storylines than prior levels, and a wider variety of structure and punctuation. Illustrations offer support for decoding the more challenging vocabulary words introduced.

Booklist

Well suited to beginning readers, the short, large-type sentences flow nicely. Equally appealing to preschoolers, the book makes a good read-aloud, and the clearly drawn, colorful artwork, created using colored pencils, gouache, and watercolors, is well suited to group sharing. . . . An effective science book featuring a simple concept that is carried out beautifully.

Kirkus Reviews

Starred Review
This informational early reader employs a controlled vocabulary that intentionally repeats words and phrases to facilitate independent reading. Many recognizable insects appear in the book, like the field cricket and the bumblebee, but Rockwell also includes some, such as the little wood satyr butterfly and the cucumber beetle, that will pique curiosity and encourage budding entomologists to explore further to learn about bugs they've never met. A fun, educational science book that thoughtfully portrays kids of color engaging with and learning from nature and each other.
