"Gently encourages young readers to explore their natural surroundings and observe some of the more commonly found insects in it." -- School Library Journal (starred review)


Right now, all around us, thousands of insects are doing strange and wonderful things: wasps are building nests, ants are collecting food, and dragonflies are readying for the hunt. But it's not always easy to catch sight of these six-legged creatures; you have to know where to look. Guided by this book, readers will happily become insect detectives and find out just what those bugs are up to.
Back matter includes an index.

Young readers will definitely catch the bug when they see this enticing, fact-filled invitation to explore the world of insects. - Etc. for Her
