Book Overview

The most colorful wings on the pond belong to the nimble dragonfly, but this delicate flying insect didn't begin life in the air. In Backyard Books: Are You a Dragonfly? by Judy Allen with illustrations by Tudor Humphries, the secrets of metamorphosis are unfurled through the story of a familiar backyard creature.

Very Cute

Not much to it, but its a cute kids book material feels high quality

Entertaining and educational

We love this book, as well as the others in the series. A perfect mixture of learning and fun. I even learned things about dragonflies I didn't know.

Seems Aimed At Girls

This little science book teaches about the life cycle of the dragonfly and a little of its history. It does this by pointing out the differences between dragonflies and humans (humans never have to worry about being eaten by a duck). It starts by asking the title question. Insects have often been thought of as fascinating for boys and scary for girls and I wonder if that had anything to do with the creation of this book. I wonder because all of the children pictured are girls. My daughter was intrigued by the book and had me read it several times. I do not know if the interest will stick and have more readings requested or not. One can only think that the series as a whole is best suited for libraries with only the favorite creature or two being purchased for the home. Whether you decide to borrow or buy is up to you but I am sure you will find the book well laid out and informative.


This is an excellent book for a new reader. The wording is simple and easy to understand describing the life cycle of a dragonfly and the illustrations are quite beautiful. I gave this book to my 7 year old grandson and he loves it! I plan to buy more books in this informative, interesting series. I highly recommend it!!
