About this book

Here is a fact-filled book for young children about all kinds of creepy crawlies. Yuval Zommer's wonderful illustrations show the wrigglers, stingers, bombers, fliers and chirpers of the bug world – and children will love the search-and-find activities on the page.

Introductory spreads explain that bugs live nearly everywhere on Earth and give tips on how to become a young bug spotter. The Big Book of Bugs is divided into key groups of bugs, including beetles, moths, butterflies, bees, snails, crickets, grasshoppers, worms and spiders, all illustrated with scenic compositions. Some spreads approach the world of bugs thematically, such as bugs that come out at night, baby creepy-crawlies and life cycles, how bugs hide and show off and how some bugs love to live in your home. The text is chatty, funny and full of amazing facts.
