Booklist Reviews 2020 March #1

One Saturday, Grandad takes George to the Museum of Natural History, and boy howdy does it blow the kid's mind. They make a beeline to "Insect World," where entomological wonders (Grandad's favorite!) are on display. Afterwards, George gets the bug bug and begins collecting every flying or crawling critter he can. Cartoonish illustrations show George cavorting about his backyard with a butterfly net, rigging clever traps. Soon he has a massive collection of jarred and bottled insects, which—while beautiful—seem distinctly sad about their new digs. The droopy butterfly wearing an even droopier frown says it all. The next day, "everywhere was dull and sad" without the buzz of bugs, and Grandad explains how these creatures have important jobs to do in nature and shouldn't be kept in jars. Griffiths delightfully captures George's enthusiasm while delivering a gentle lesson in environmental stewardship. The "bug garden" George and Grandad plant is a much friendlier alternative to collecting, one that can be easily implemented by readers wishing to support their local pollinators. Grades K-3.
