Synopsis by Alice Day
For young students who are interested in insects, Reading Rainbow: Bugs provides many topics that will keep their attention. The featured book is full of information regarding insects commonly found in backyards, and the field trip is to Cincinnati Zoo's Insect World to see its collections. Host LeVar Burton also invites viewers on a journey to Mexico to see the migratory destination of millions of monarch butterflies. In the kid-reviewed book segment, the young critics scrutinize Ladybug by Barrie Watts, Ant Cities by Arthur Dorros, and Backyard Insects by Millicent E. Selsam and Ronald Coor.
