“In the beginning of the book there is a letter written by the stinkbug. He tells us that he likes to live in a goldenrod flower and tells us some other things about him. He stinks up places to protect himself from things trying to eat him. Then, when the book starts there are all kinds of other insects that are in the same flower like a butterfly, a ladybug, and a bee. I liked the part at the end where you can learn more about the bugs. I learned that lots of spiders have eight eyes. They are in two rows of four. I drew a picture of them! “
“On One Flower: Butterflies, Ticks and a few more Icks” is a wonderful educational book about many of the smaller creatures in our world. Throughout the book we learned about predators and prey, and the different characteristics of the insects. At the end of the book there is a “Field Notes” section which provides further information about the creatures mentioned in the book. My child and I both learned many interesting facts, like the fact that “ladybugs are practically blind.” We recommend “On One Flower: Butterflies, Ticks and a few more Icks” to any child curious about insects and wanting to learn more!
