Booklist - 06/01/2014 The Zoom in on Insects! series does just what good science books for a young age group should: offer facts in short but easily understandable texts. Clear and engaging photos help whet readers’ appetites to learn more. The titles follow a pattern, introducing habitats, body parts, and how the titular subject evolves. Grasshoppers begins with habitats before continuing on with in-detail looks at body parts, including eyes, wings, and legs. Each book ends with an illustration of the insect’s life cycle and a page directing children toward helpful websites. The best part of the series is the wonderfully crisp photos, with certain images—an insect’s eye, for example—lifted from the larger picture and put into a “zoom bubble,” where kids can really see what’s going on. Primary-grade students and their teachers will certainly appreciate this. - Copyright 2014 Booklist.

School Library Journal - 08/01/2014 Pres-Gr 1—Enslow continues to "Zoom in," this time focusing on insects (previous series have centered on "Body Invaders," "Crime Scenes," and "Bizarre Bugs"). Stewart breaks down these bugs part by part, providing basic information on antennae, legs, wings, eyes, as well as on their life cycles and habitats, relying upon sparse text ideal for young readers and a colorful, eye-catching layout. Though quality of the photos varies, for the most part, these close-up images will engage children--particularly Grasshoppers and Dragonflies. - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
