Did you know there are twice as many insects in the world as all other animals combined? They're all around us ... if we know where to look! This beautifully illustrated book about bugs introduces young readers to ants, honeybees, dragonflies and more! It covers the basic body parts of different kinds of bugs, their life cycles, their range of unique habitats and even teaches how to tell them apart from common “insect impostors” like spiders. And it takes readers on a year through the lives of bugs, explaining which bugs can be found in each of the four seasons, and where. An interactive beginner's bug-watching guide provides a series of questions to lead readers through the steps of identifying bugs, and lists the tools every bug-watcher needs. This book is the perfect inspiration for new and long-time bug-watchers to get up close with these fascinating tiny creatures! Pamela Hickman's comprehensive introduction to bugs is sure to encourage the naturalist in every child.
