Product description

Review

This giant, splendidly illustrated book of bugs will have children reaching for a magnifying glass instead of that fly swatter. Bugs have never looked better than in Zommer's colorful, often comical little portraits and glorious natural backdrops, from gardens to ponds. Each artfully composed, oversized spread teems with life and mini-bug dramas, and the brief text is fun and accessible. By the end, two-legged whippersnappers will be convinced that bugs are not only intriguing and marvelous, but useful and deserving of respect.—Shelf Awareness

An eye-catching and engaging introduction to bugs… . Individual bug groups (ants, dragonflies, bees, praying mantis, etc.) are shown on beautifully illustrated double-paged spreads buzzing with activity and awash with watercolor hues. Zommer’s detailed illustrations and seek-and-find feature will keep young readers enrapt, as they absorb entomological basics from the approachable, factoid-rich text.—Booklist

A handsome introduction to tiny, oft-overlooked creatures… Seek-and-find prompts invite eagle-eyed readers to identify bugs either by appearance or behavior. Most spreads are devoted to specific creatures; later pages explore how bugs grow, where they can be found, and some of the ecological roles they play.—Publishers Weekly

An interactive book that will engage and entertain readers while they learn a few basic bug facts… Whimsically illustrated bugs with big eyes crawl, fly, dig, and swoop across the pages in great detail.—School Library Journal
