Description

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

A Junior Library Guild Selection

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.
