A young child enjoys watching the colorful dragonflies at the pond near her home and decides to spend the summer keeping a dragonfly diary. Readers will follow along as the narrator observes female dragonflies laying eggs in the pond, and then keeps watch for nymphs in the water. When a nymph climbs from the pond and undergoes its incredible metamorphosis into an adult dragonfly, the excited diarist is there to describe every moment! Colorful photos, diagrams, and clear, age-appropriate text will engage young readers as they explore the life cycle, natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, and behavior of these beautiful insects. The diary format models scientific observation and critical thinking—and encourages children to keep notebooks recording their own investigations into the natural world. A Dragonfly’s Life is part of Bearport’s Animal Diaries: Life Cycles series.
