REVIEW for Focus on Flies

A big thank you goes out to Lori for sending me this great little book!!!

TITLE: Focus on Flies
AUTHOR: Norma Dixon
GENRE: Children's Books
RATING: 4 Stars
In this day and age of the Internet, I was thrilled to discover this little gem of a book. Yes, it is convenient for kids to hit the Internet sites when they want to find out about a certain subject, but I am from the older generation, where we actually had to pull out books and encyclopedias when we were doing school projects or needed to find out some information. This is one of the reasons Focus on Flies is such a wonderful book. Its an actual book that you can hold in your hands and touch.
It is also a book that you can open and discover! This 32 page book takes a thorough look at the world of flies and it does so with beautiful color photos and impressive information on the insect. This book covers off the anatomy of a fly and even gives you a great little description of their world. The information contained in this book is easily accessible to the younger crowd (as this book is aimed at them) and even contains some activities that the kids are encouraged to try.
But, as I mentioned, what I loved best about this book is that it is a wonderful book that can be put up on a child's library shelf - where she/he can access it anytime - just by reaching out for it.
I loved this little book
