Cayden’s comments:

“We see dragonflies a lot in the summer. They are kind of cool looking. In this book a dragonfly flies into the girl’s house and lands on her toothbrush! She tells her aunt who is a person who knows a lot about bugs. Her aunt says that the dragonfly needs to go to the pond so they bring it there. Her aunt is kind of a silly lady and does some funny things but she knows a lot about different insects. The girl goes to the pond a lot. I like that dragonflies eat mosquitoes. I don’t like mosquito bites at all. I don’t think there are a lot of dragonflies by where we go camping because there are a lot of mosquitoes there. I liked learning about dragonflies.”

Parent’s comments:

“Eliza and the Dragonfly” is a fun story about Eliza and her Aunt Doris, an entomologist. Aunt Doris teaches her all about the life cycle of a dragonfly. The book is filled with great information and I think that any young child would love the storyline and learn so much from reading this book.
