Just in time for Brood X, here’s another cicada book for kids: Cicada Symphony by Lisa Kobman.
I haven’t read the book, so I cannot give my opinion. Lisa says she consulted with Gene Kritsky when writing the book.
Here are some details from Amazon.com:
This book is the perfect learning tool for teaching children about cicadas. It explains the complicated and fascinating life cycle of the 17-year cicada (Brood X) in a way a preschooler and elementary-aged child can understand and connect with. Children will be drawn in by the beautiful, vivid illustrations, humor, and compelling storyline. The rhyming language should help ease anxiety about these amazing bugs and could even inspire a sense of wonder and excitement about cicadas for children and adults alike. It is the perfect addition to your science/nature collection. Don’t be surprised if after reading this book, readers of all ages head outside to check out the cicadas!
