    In a small French village lives a strange man who is interested in the smallest of creatures, the insects around us He lures flies with dead animals that he pays the children in the village to find His home is filled with specimens No one realized that he was one of the greatest naturalists of his time Jean Henri Fabre grew up in the countryside where he was fascinated by the natural world around him No one else seemed interested in the same things that he was, but that didn t deter him from inv [...]

    As far as a kids book it kind of misses the mark The illustrations are generally great and look like lush paintings Some of them are too fuzzy or blurry when reading the book If you were reading to a kid it might not matter though The plot of the book goes all over the place and never feels complete, which is often the exact opposite of the scientific method, which is one of the reasons he became so popular At the beginning you think the story is going to be told through a boy in the village and [...]

    This is the intriguing story of Jean Henri Fabre, a self taught naturalist whose fascination with insects led him to discover that these creatures actually communicated with each other and were hard wired with certain behaviors Born in 1823, he shared his discoveries with the public, many of whom were shocked by what he learned There were many large wonders to be found from studying these small wonders of nature Readers cannot fail to be inspired by his example as he toiled alone with little ass [...]

    I had not heard of Jean Henri Fabre This is a beautiful picture book that shares the story of this great entomologist My daughter and I both really enjoyed this book and discussing his life story.Jean Henri Fabre wrote a piece called The Boy Who Loved Insects I liked a quote that said, We have all of us, men and animals, some special gift One child takes to music another is always modeling things out of clay another is quick at figures It is the same way with insects One kind of bee can cut leav [...]

    Disclosure I won this book in a FirstReads giveaway.Who would have thought a biography of an entymologist would make for an excellent children s book The author writes about the life of Jean Henri Fabre in a whimsical and lighthearted way It s really sweet and makes the life of a scientist sound passionate and full of fun This is a great one for parents to read with their kids as I m sure it raises lots of little questions.The art is really beautiful and suits the whimsical style of the book per [...]

    The text of this book is unclear and confusing The backmatter, especially the historical note, would have made a better book The artwork is nice, but not enough.

    This book was able to provide a valuable lesson while telling a wonderful story The pictures and the detailed text highlighted the academic use of this book while also allowing for entertainment The descriptions provided in the book allowed for readers to form in depth connections while reading It is as if I could hear the bees buzz and smell the various flowers due to Smith s wonderful writing This story is a good read and could instill the want to learn in many young children Maybe it will eve [...]

    Esther Westfall
    This was a wonderfully told story about the life of Jean Henri Fabre He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for writing than 200 works primarily about insects Though this was a biographical story, my kids loved it too because it was written in a way that makes it easy for them to understand as well Would definitely recommend it to everyone

    Wow There is a lot of information packed into this picture book It may be a little overwhelming for small children but the illustrations are brightly done and fascinating on their own This would be a wonderful introduction to any bug or insect related outdoor activity.

    I had never heard of this man I will have to see what the family entomologist thinks of this book I particularly love the illustrations.

    This story is a Nebraska Golden Sower nominee for 2016 This book is a fictional book about a man who makes it his life s work to collect all sorts of insects throughout the day and night He collects live ones and dead ones and keeps them all in his home in France It wasn t always this way The book then goes on to tell us that this man had grown up as a boy who was extremely curious about the world around him and who found beauty in even the strangest places But as the man aged, he lost interest [...]

    A picture book bio and a self taught naturalist living in France Jean Henri Fabre spent hundreds of hours observing insects in their natural environment and his backyard research led to discoveries that changed science forever.During the time that Fabre lived 1823 1915 , most research on insects was done in labs and involved dissecting dead specimans Fabre took his enthusiasm and curiosity for insects and wrote for the benefit of both scientists and the general public Here, the facts of Fabre s [...]

    This science informational book doubles as a biography about Jean Henri Fabre In this super colorful book we learn about insects and how Fabre studied them The illustrations were cool and I think children would like to look at the pictures as much as they want to find out about the tiny critters around them.This book would be best suited as a read aloud for a classroom starting a section on bugs This introduces all sorts of bugs as well as a famous naturalist that studies them I think this is pr [...]

    Small Wonders Jean Henri Fabre and His World of Insects is a biography book for children 6 9 The book is about a scientist who is well known retells his life story He spoke to and collected animals and did many studies of them The illustrations used pencil drawing and water color which gave the book a good affect However, I really didn t enjoy the book that much I think since the author was the little boy his self he could of use background information so maybe the reader could connect Also, I [...]

    Sometimes you really enjoy a book because you already know and enjoy the person or thing that the book is written about I come to this book biased We have read a couple of Jean Henri Fabre s natural history books and have enjoyed them so much, I am now partial to a children s book about his life.So maybe others may find things to critique about this book, I am willing to give the benefit of the doubt all the way to the last page The illustrations capture and expand the momentum of the text, both [...]

    I dislike bugs Quite a bit.And yet they re fascinating This book describes everything I like about bugs and science in general the observing, asking questions and looking for answers, and the thrill of seeing something actually happen The patience involved The excitement of sharing discoveries.Jean Henri Fabre made bugs seem cool I m not about to run out into the field and start following the ants around, but I sincerely appreciate that he did so He not only uncovered the mysteries of the insect [...]

    A nice picture book about a man best known in France who was a poet as well as a naturalist he was nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature For his ten volume set of essays on insects and other natural subjects He lived from 1823 1915, studied insects all around him in their natural habitats Was a teacher, though the popularity of his class aroused suspicions and he was forced to resign He was the first person to prove insects use pheremones He had a passion to share everything about insects [...]

    My seven year old and I really liked this for a bedtime read A fascinating story about a little boy who liked to explore the world, and who grew up to be an old man who studied and told people about the world of insects For a bug and nature loving kid, this a great story The text draws the reader in to the luminous world created by the illustrations and the paradox of starting with an old man doing odd experiments who is eventually visited by the President of France adds suspense I especially li [...]

    Author s note is far too long this should have been better integrated into the main text We don t need to be told the same story twice The main text isn t very appropriate for the subject and probable audience Fabre is important and deserves not a children s picture book, but a juvenile biography Looks to me like the perfect book was already done back in 1928 The Boy Who Found Out The Story of Henri Fabre.

    Clarissa
    A lovely book about a fascinating person I had never heard of Jean Henri Fabre before He was a 19th century French man who was fascinated by insects and small crawly creatures He spent much of his life studying them, and unlike many other scientists of his time he wanted to share his knowledge, teaching and writing about the things he discovered by watching them Some of the things he discovered about bugs were scandalous, and it was a bit shocking that he taught them to women and children.

    Disclaimer I received this book for free from First Reads Program in exchange for an honest review Okay Quite frankly, I was really shocked when I received the book It s has the size of Kiddy version encyclopedia I used to read when I was still a kid Nevertheless, the story is very good At first I thought it only has a simple plot but boy, I was wrong Thos bool is very informative, I learned a lot of things, saw a lot of different creatures and I highly recommend this book to everyone It s very [...]

    Susan
    A surprisingly moving book, very commuovere to use an Italian word learned from the book, Lost in Translation , revealing the poetic and scientific mind of this little known but important figure Not just a story of a scientist, but the life study of someone who persevered despite many heartaches and setbacks His sense of wonder of the world is very dear A kindred spirit I will definitely want to include my library s biography section.

    Shelli
    I love when picture books introduce me to a new person such a fun way to quickly learn something new and start me on a journey to discovery even Jean Henri Fabre, was someone who was always passionate about bugs His observations about insects led to many discoveries and a Nobel Prize in literature for his informative yet beautifully written works This is a fun read to share with students, particularly before going out on a bug hunt to observe nature in action.

    Tracey
    A picture book biography of a man who, as a boy, loved to study the critters that lived outside his home When he grew up, instead of studying exotic insects in faraway places, he kept on studying those that were familiar and close He became one of a very few scientists to be nominated for a Nobel Prize in Literature.Original post on mackinbooksinbloom 2015 04

    3.5 StarsI thought this was a nice book HOWEVER, it seems like it skips over historical stuff Like it says 2 of his children died but doesn t say how and it doesn t mention that he had many child, and that his first wife died her remarried and had children It was interesting learning about Jean Henri Fabre A good book about insects, but do I love it and think it is an award winner NO Right now this doesn t not make my short list

    Lynn
    A life story well told with well constructed sentences that pull the reader in right from the start Once there was The narrative reads like a story but tells us about a scientist whose curiosity and careful study of tiny creatures could inspire readers to take a closer look at the world around them.Beautiful illustrations show wide views and close ups of plants and insects, helping us to see their beauty.
