I ve read this book twice so far and I m still not sure what to say about it While I can certainly appreciate the story, artwork and the interesting facts at the end, it s not the sort of book I d choose to purchase for a child unless I already knew they had a fascination for spiders or science, or if we d been on a tour of Chicago s Field Museum of Natural History and they d expressed an interest in it.Without knowing the age group that Rosie the Tarantula is intended to reach it s difficult I ve read this book twice so far and I m still not sure what to say about it While I can certainly appreciate the story, artwork and the interesting facts at the end, it s not the sort of book I d choose to purchase for a child unless I already knew they had a fascination for spiders or science, or if we d been on a tour of Chicago s Field Museum of Natural History and they d expressed an interest in it.Without knowing the age group that Rosie the Tarantula is intended to reach it s difficult to say whether it is appropriate or not but I would expect older children would beinterested.The rhyming worked well but included words that younger children most likely wouldn t be familiar with including bespattered and DDT The facts at the end were very interesting butso for an adult audience or an older child with an enquiring mind.The watercolour illustrations were gorgeous but their soft colours aren t what you usually see in books for younger children, which again leads me to believe this book isappropriate for older children I think adults will enjoy the detail in the illustrationsthan their children, unless the child has been on a tour of the museum and can point out elements of the pictures they remember seeing during their visit While I can see this book selling well in the museum s gift shop I m not sure how it will be received outside of this setting I received a copy of this book from NetGalley thank you so much to NetGalley and Northwestern University Press for the opportunity in exchange for honest feedback This story follows Rosie s adventures in a behind the scenes look at the Chicago Field Museum For content, the target audience seems to be elementary school children The illustrations are done in muted colors and very finely detailed For those reasons, they arelikely to appeal to a slightly older audience as well Overall, this is an interesting book with a great rhyme scheme for younger readers.I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review. As Rosie meanders around Chicago s Field Museum readers get a glimpse of the exhibits and the work being done there The watercolor illustrations alone make this one worthwhile. A quick and delightful read, great for both children and adults It begins with a short illustrated story about a tarantula named Rosie who lives in a museum The story shows how Rosie s day in the museum is like.After the short story, there are tons of information about tarantula and spiders in general, which was something that average adults might find interesting I know I did Those were great scientific facts to learn.Recommend to parents with pre school children who re interested in scienc A quick and delightful read, great for both children and adults It begins with a short illustrated story about a tarantula named Rosie who lives in a museum The story shows how Rosie s day in the museum is like.After the short story, there are tons of information about tarantula and spiders in general, which was something that average adults might find interesting I know I did Those were great scientific facts to learn.Recommend to parents with pre school children who re interested in science and biology, also adult readers who are interested in spiders and museums This is a cute picture book about a spider who lives at a museum I most loved the water color photos Another cool part is that at the end there is a glossary that explains some facts This book would be good for a child who might like spiders, or even for a child who might be a little fearful of them to show them that they are not all that scary once you get to know them so to speak Free copy provided by netgally This was a fun book of discovery where you got to learnabout Rosie and where she lives in the very impressive Chicago Field Museum I enjoyed the story but wasn t a huge fan of the illustrations personally but can see others loving them and it is purely personal preference 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 for Goodreads and . This fact filled story follows Rosie s the Tarantula as she explores the Chicago Field Museum I must tell you I adore this book which assists children in having a deeper appreciation of nature The rhyme is well versed and the illustrations throughout the adventure show processes and clarify concepts I highly recommend this book It is a treasure.
