Description

Introductory spreads explain that bugs live nearly everywhere on Earth and give tips on how to become a young bug spotter. The book is divided into key groups of bugs, including beetles, moths, butterflies, bees, snails, crickets, grasshoppers, worms and spiders, all illustrated with scenic compositions. Some spreads approach the world of bugs thematically, such as bugs that come out at night, baby creepy-crawlies and life cycles, how bugs hide and show off and how some bugs love to live in your home. The text is chatty, funny and full of amazing facts.

Features:

  • Picture-book charm meets hard-working non-fiction to appeal to both parents and children.
  • Perfect for parents to share with younger children – and for older children to read by themselves.
  • A beautiful book to look at again and again: Yuval Zommer’s wonderful illustrations showing a multitude of wrigglers, stingers, fliers, bombers and chirpers make the book feel very special.
