⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Beetle Battles by Doug Emlen

If you’re looking for a new nonfiction to share with your upper elementary and middle grades students, I’ve have just the title for you: Doug Emlen‘s Beetle Battles (out on December 24 from Macmillan)! I’ve just started reading it, and it’s quite engaging!

Even the most beetle-adverse person will love Emlen’s writing style and be drawn into the narrative quality of a very unique inquiry: the study of beetle’s weapons. Emlen details honestly and humorously his research question, challenges, and successes. Sure to entertain as well as inform, Beetle Battles is a pleasant addition to the nonfiction children’s book market.

Blending journal entries, photographs, lists, and charts, Beetle Battles does not conform to traditional understandings of nonfiction. This book will fit wonderfully into a study of nonfiction texts and can serve as a mentor text for student scientists who are looking to share their findings in creative and engaging ways.

A masterfully written text that will engage all those who yearn to answer a question that others have not dared to answer, Beetle Battles earns five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
