Insects are fascinating and often misunderstood creatures, and no two species are exactly alike. Some insects come out during the day, and others come out at night. Some get their food from plants while the peskier insects find food in your pantry! From the author and illustrator team that brought you the acclaimed About… series, Curious About Insects introduces the youngest readers to the diverse world of insects through basic facts about what they look like, where they live, what they eat, and how they move.
This new addition to the Discovering Nature board book series provides early opportunities to compare, contrast, and observe physical and behavioral patterns in nature. Educator and author Cathryn Sill’s simple vocabulary and wildlife illustrator John Sill’s realistic portrayals of insects and their habitats are perfect for young outdoors enthusiasts learning to describe what they see outside the classroom and in their own backyard. From the helpful Honeybee to the beautiful Luna Moth, the variety of fascinating creatures introduced is sure to captivate bug buffs and little explorers alike.
Meet some of our six-legged friends in this excerpt.
