I loved this book. Wonderful illustrations and information for young readers. I love more scientific yet approachable books for the classroom.

Jeremy and his school friends are so sweet! This book showed how certain animals can be cool to look at but hurtful in ways. You’re never too young to learn about the safe removal of invasive species.

This book is a great way to teach young kids how different things especially affect the environment. It also teaches kids that as humans it is our responsibility to protect our environment . Love the definitions in the back of the book so that children can add new words to their vocabulary.

I think this is a great way to be informative about a serious manner but explained to children in a kid way. It was engaging and i can see children 5-10 liking this book. The artwork was beautiful

This book not only has beautiful illustrations, but it also teaches young readers about animals and their habitats.

A fun, adventurous children's picture book discovering bugs, etymology, and learning! Bright, detailed artwork encourages kids to discover all the bugs and friends on the page (shout out to awesome diversity with Jeremy's class), However, the story itself was very long, with big paragraphs on each page with big words. There is a pronunciation guide in the back, as well as a free activity kit provided by the author. Definitely a book better suited for lapsit reading, or maybe reading to older kids during their science unit.

This children’s book teaches all about entomology, or the study of bugs. This book would be perfect for kids that love bugs and the outdoors. I think it could also get kids more excited about going outside, if they aren’t already!

I LOVE that this book comes with a free printable activity kit. This definitely gives parents more bang for the their buck. It furthers the enjoyment of the book, and allows parents to have more fun with their children.

Jeremy and the Beetle Takedown is a book that discusses what invasive species are and how they can hurt other organisms, upsetting the natural balance of things.

This story follows Jeremy and his friends. While learning about entomology (the study of insects) they come across an insect they had never seen before, the Emerald Ash Bore. It's a beetle the feeds on the trunk under the bark of the ash tree as larvae, and then consumes the leaves as adults, leaving the tree weak and dying. Jeremy and his friends try to learn everything they can do to help the trees, but that's all I'll say. You'll need to read the book to see how it ends!

As someone who has seen the damage the emerald ash bore has done first hand, I think this is a fantastic book! It's a way for me to explain to my children why the trees around us are dying and what we can do to help!

The only note I have is that I found the ending to be a bit, convenient. I get it's a children's book and that it's a good lesson to learn, but there was no establishment that the humans and bugs/animals could talk with each other before meeting the ash bores, so it kind of came out of left field for me.

But overall I think this is a fantastic book and will definitely pick it up for our home library!

I really think there needs to be more approachable science books for young readers. This gorgeous little picture book tells a story about kids learning about science in class, but learning that they can make a difference in the real world.
Thanks to NetGalley for letting me read this

This book about our planet and natural resources. When you purchasing this book, you will have an activities kit inside.

The story begin when Jeremy in the science class. That day lesson was about to learn Entomology. Entomologies are studies about insects such as ladybug, butterflies, and flies. So they will learn the anatomy and life cycles of insects outside the class. They were ready to explore more. At the last pages, have glossary and facts to learn the science term.

Its a good book to read with kids. Show them, tell them and explained to them slowly how the process was.
