A fascinating welcome to the wonderful world of insects' - LoveReading4Kids
'Fun, inspiring, and well researched.' - Kirkus Reviews, starred review
A beautifull illustrated tour of some of the world's most fascinating insects, perfect for readers 8+.
Did you know that without insects, humankind could not survive? This illustrated, fact-filled title explores the huge variety of insects, with a focus on what makes an insect an insect, the differences between the groups, and why insects are the most important animal group on Earth.
Broken down into sections exploring each of the main types of insect, each section takes a different, playfully visual approach to really capture the character of the insects in the order being explored. As well as including practical advice for observing insects safely, a section at the back of the book describes ways to help insects and encourage them into a garden no matter how small.
