This is a bright, beautiful, bold introduction to the world of bugs! It even has a Bug-o-Meter in the back and a card to start your own field guide and bug sighting. — Jessica Wood
"Budding entomologists will fly to this book like bees to honey," said School Library Journal, and it's true! Pretty ladybugs, fluttering butterflies, creepy daddy longlegs, and round roly polies are just some of the familiar creatures featured in this whimsically illustrated insect album from veteran children's book author-illustrator Bob Barner. Check out the actual size bug chart, which provides real-world comparisons so that readers know exactly how big each bug is, and the Bug-O-Meter, which lists fun facts about each bug, such as number of legs, where it lives, whether it flies, and if it stings.
