"This book describes the lives of social insects - such as ants, wasps, honeybees, and termites - and tells how they work together and communicate in order to survive. The book is divided into a series of two-page chapters covering such topics as living together, the pecking order, baby-sitters, castles and combs, hunters and gatherers, and defense and attack. Such terms as pheromones, caste, and metamorphosis are clearly explained and described within the text itself. There is also a glossary and bibliography,. Overall, an attractively designed and useful volume." - Linnea Hendrickson, Children's Literature.
