In this beautiful purple-level reader, kids will discover all about the life cycle of dragonflies. The up-close photos and descriptive text explains how dragonflies start life as tiny nymphs living underwater. Readers will learn how the nymphs go hunting for tadpoles and young fish. And they will watch as a nymph one day climbs from the water, breaks out of its old exoskeleton and emerges as a glittering, green dragonfly.
