RTL: Not a Buzz to Be Found: Insects in Winter

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Book Title: Not a Buzz to Be Found
Author: Linda Glaser
Islamically Appropriate?: Yes
Genre: Non- Fiction
Book Format: Picture Book
Age Group: 7 years and older
Book Review:The spring is gone and snow covers the ground. But there is something else that lets us know that winter is here....the air is silent. There are no buzzing or zipping sounds that tell us that insects are flying about.

In this book the author leads children on a wonderful journey of discovery that shows (and tells) what insect do in the winter. Such questions as: "Where do they go?", "What do they eat?", "Where do they sleep?" are answered before the last page of the book is turned. The illustrations support the text very well, showing what is happening above and below ground, and this will help engage children in the story insha'Allaah.

This may be a text you consider using just before winter arrives (or just as it arrives) to help teach children how the environment changes with the seasons by the Will of Allaah.

Until the next read insha'Allaah....
