In the air, on the ground, and in the water, incredible tiny creatures are all around us! They may be small, but they live remarkable lives. The Book of Tiny Creatures introduces young learners to spiders, butterflies, worms, snails, and even the world's heaviest insect, the Little Barrier Island giant weta. This fun-filled book teaches children fascinating facts through interactive quizzes, detailed seek-and-find scenes, and hands-on activities, like how to make a snail terrarium. A great first STEM read, The Book of Tiny Creatures reveals the wonder of how these creatures grow, reproduce, form communities, and more.
"Detailed, colorful watercolor art accompanies pages of information about the smallest members of these groups: mollusks, annelids, and arthropods....Effectively demonstrates that small can be fascinating."
- Kirkus Reviews
"The smallest creatures children can commonly see-mollusks (such as snails), annelids (worms), and arthropods (insects, spiders, and scorpions), are covered by environmental journalist Tordjman (The Living Pond) in entrancing detail in this English translation of a French import....[T]he breadth of the topics covered and engaging visual layout make this commendable. A gorgeous choice for school and public libraries."
- ALA Booklist
"Kids of all ages will enjoy learning more about tiny creatures in this informative, beautifully illustrated picture book....The Book of Tiny Creatures is a picture book children will frequently revisit to learn more about the incredible world of tiny creatures. Highly recommended!"
"This is a browsable and beautifully illustrated guide to mollusks, worms, and arthropods (e.g., insects and arachnids). Realistically detailed drawings (with some cartoony art interspersed) accompany an engaging bullet-point text that opens with general information about the three groups and their reproduction, growth, and migration."
