This is a reprint of an old Science Reader. It is undated, but published with other books written in the early 1900's. It is a very detailed, interesting reader with stories & lessons about various insects found on land & near the water. It also includes insects & creatures in ponds and ocean habitats. (Sea beetles, fish, misquitoes, barnacles, jellyfish etc.) This is more informative & interesting than most modern insect studies.
