    This is a great book, from a secular science perspective. The author spends a lot of time in the beginning of the book explaining how insects "evolved", so I have spent extra time discussing insects from a creationists POV.Once past the introduction and overview, the book opens up with wonderful details and pictures. I have even used it myself to identify the insects around the backyard.Again, this book is very secular, but very useful, I would suggest this book for a interested middle schooler to adult.
