Amazing Insects Around the World

We rated this book:


Some people shudder at the thought of an insect but this colorfully illustrated book introduces the young reader to the truly amazing world of the insect. Think about fireflies, butterflies, moths, beetles, ants, praying mantises, and so many more. This book explains the vital role that insects play in our world, how they develop, their anatomy, and so much more. It also explains what would happen to our fruit if there were no flying pollinators, as well as how to distinguish a moth from a butterfly, recognize a beetle, inspect the miles of underground tunnels dug by ants, or check out termite cathedrals.

Examine insects that are essential to the ecosystem and be concerned about those that may transmit disease or use poison for defense. Even though spiders are not insects, they are useful arachnids that weave varieties of webs that trap insects. It is filled with provocative details that will challenge the youthful reader, such as learning that the familiar ladybug is not a bug but is really a beetle. There are pages of beguiling and brilliantly colored illustrations of these magical appearing insects along with names and vocabulary that will engage the young reader.
