Teachers, here is an elementary insect “field trip between covers” from Tony Fredericks, a funny but very astute professor. The “trip” takes place all on one flower, a goldenrod, which is practically a “minibeast park.” A butterfly sipping nectar ? a ladybug snacking on aphids . . . oh ladybug, look out for the ambushbug! Dr. Fredericks focuses on the whole plant-and-animal “community” inhabiting a single flower. Two pages of “Field Notes” and “fun facts” at the back of the book offer intriguing information on these creatures.
