The amazingly detailed photographs and age appropriate text will have kids searching for- not shooing- some of more than 85,000 different species of flies (yes, that's 85,000). The book's inspiring experiments strike the right balance between challenging and simple and include suggestions to improve empirical results and increase scientific observation skills. This is an excellent reference book for an older child interested in science or stumped for a science fair project.
