Suzanne, a few years ago I found a book at Borders in their discount book section that you might find useful. I saw it again relatively recently. It's called The Handy Bug Answer Book, Dr. Gilbert Waldbauer, Professor Emeritus, Dept of Entomology, U of Ill, Urbana-Champaign (up the road from where I went to school). What I like about it is that it lists questions that kids and adults alike would ask and answers them. I find it easy to use. Your granddaughter is too young to ask the insect questions that will stump you but she soon will be able to. ;-) Here's a link to more info found at Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1578590493/qid%3D1056128407/sr%3D11-1/ref%3Dsr%5F11%5F1/103-1663883-6756654 If the above is too long and you can't link, go to Amazon.com and type in the title and you'll get to the page. btw, I got my copy at Borders for $4.98 or $5.98, IIRC. I thought it was a discontinued book - remainders, I think they call them - because of the price so I was surprised, but glad, to find it at Amazon. Lisa
