Reviews

"Kids ages four to eight will love the fascinating facts about everyday bugs... A captivating way of introducing insects to children."
--Quill & Quire STARRED review

"Spreads full of beauty and information, familial tenderness, and Bompa's enthusiasm lift this story above ordinary nature explorations with unexpected complexity and substance."
--Publishers Weekly STARRED review

The message about finding the extraordinary in the ordinary is a worthy one, especially for young explorers who might not have much access to nature spaces."
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A terrific invitation to take closer looks and think longer thoughts."
--Kirkus, STARRED review

"Bompa's Insect Expedition is such a fun, almost non-fiction, volume... As Bompa narrates the bug world, the twins, armed with magnifying glasses, backpacks, and safari hats, crawl around following ant trails, wade through grasses swaying over their shoulders, and swat at mosquitoes. [B]elongs with Diary of a Spider by Doreen Cronin and other insect picture books that subtly teach bug facts while adventuring with the insects."
--Youth Services Book Review, STARRED review
