Insect Metamorphosis: From Egg To Adult
1990. Ron and Nancy Goor. Insects have a special way of growing called metamorphosis. Some insects, like butterflies, form in stages while other insects undergo an incomplete metamorphosis-they hatch as miniature versions of what they will someday be. Grasshoppers, praying mantids, and dragonflies are among the insects that grow this way. The authors have captured the insects' changing world in exciting full-color photographs and simple text. 26 pages, soft cover, full-color photographs. Ages 7-10.
