This bright and lively board book introduces young children to a range of minibeasts and their special characteristics.
Loes Botman's colorful and detailed illustrations bring the different insects -- including a butterfly, ladybug, beetle, bee and dragonfly -- vividly to life, and the simple concepts and words make these books perfect for exploring with young children.
'Against mottled backgrounds, Botman's soft pastels provide highly detailed images of the insects and other creatures, but the gentleness of her line keeps each of the critters from looking creepy in close-up. Who knew a centipede ('wiggle') could be radiant? ... A lovely biology and vocabulary lesson rolled into one.'

'The soft, bright pastel renderings give detail to each insect. Children may be inspired to act out the simple verbs for each insect. A nice book for little backyard gardeners.'
- Youth Services Book Review
'This gorgeous, bright board book introduces young children to a range of insects and creepy-crawlies. With its opening question 'Hello bugs! What do you do?' the simple concept and one-word text answers the question on each page - an image showing a bee has the word 'buzz', a spider 'spin' or centipede 'wiggle' and so on through the pages. Dutch illustrator Loes Botman's colourful and detailed illustrations bring the different insects vividly to life making this a perfect book for exploring with young children.'
