Am I an Insect?
Kristine Duehl, Katy Castronovo

Summary
With colorful and accurate illustrations designed to engage young readers, this book implements an inquiry-style
teaching method that discusses the characteristics that differentiate insects from other organisms. By asking if
each illustration shows an insect before providing information on each animal and how its characteristics do or do
not classify it as an insect, the book encourages readers to participate, from counting the number of legs a
creature has to identifying its body parts. Finishing with a summary of all insect characteristics, it asks the
Budding Biologist
reader to decide if a snail is an insect based on what they have learned throughout the book. The inquiry style
