This beginner's guide offers a first glimpse into the natural world of insects.
In this addition to the acclaimed About... series, educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what insects are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live. With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to the wide variety of insects, from grasshoppers to the Monarch Butterfly. An afterword provides further details on the insects featured and inspires young readers to learn more.
