Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: When a dragonfly lands on her toothbrush, Eliza goes to a nearby pond with her bug-loving Aunt Doris. There in the pond she sees an "awful green creature"-a dragonfly nymph-the size of a paperclip. "Eeeeewwww!" she says. Before long Eliza changes her tune about these ancient and fascinating insects. Includes information about the life cycle of dragonflies and a resource section. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_1584690593

Über diesen Titel:


Teachers and parents! This book is a rare find, well deserving of the prestigious award from CBC-NSTA. The science about dragonflies is perfectly integrated into a story in which the remarkable metamorphosis of a dragonfly from a mucky nymph (Eeeewww, says Eliza) to a beautiful winged creature (Magnificent! says Aunt Doris) is a metaphor for the magic of how Eliza, too, grows up. Teachers will find it useful primarily in an elementary science unit on insects, life cycles and habitats, but also in for language arts lessons in theme, symbolism, and metaphor. The watercolor illustrations are rich, whimsical, and fun. There are two pages of additional science in the back. This is an exceptional example of creative non-fiction writing.

Über den Autor: When Susie Caldwell Rinehart is not busy mucking about in the pond watching dragonflies, she is a teacher and writer. Born in Toronto, Canada, she has degrees in English and Science. Susie believes that the best kind of learning takes place on the edge between science and art. Eliza and the Dragonfly is her first children's book. Susie lives in Vershire, Vermont with her husband Kurt, and their son Cole. AUTORBIO: (Illustrator) It seems that Anisa Claire Hovemann has always been an artist. As a three year-old, she would form remarkably lifelike dinosaurs out of her colorful playdough. At the Waldorf elementary school she attended, her artistic tendencies fit naturally into the curriculum. She is currently a senior at the Maryland Institute College of Art, pursuing a degree in fine arts-but took off a semester to finish this project, her first illustrated book. Her research included spending quite a bit of time at "Dragonfly Pond" near her home in Nevada City, California
