Now in a bilingual edition, this first look at insects is a must for the bug-obsessed bookshelf. From the creators of the award-winning About… and About Habitats series.
“Excellent classroom or pleasure reading for science and nature fans and for any beginning readers drawn to nonfiction.” ―Booklist
In this addition to the acclaimed About… series, former 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. Spanish translations sit right below English text for easy reading.
With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to a wide variety of insects, from ants and beetles to grasshoppers and the Monarch Butterfly. An afterword provides further details on the insects featured and inspires young readers to learn more.
About Insects / Sobre los insectos is part of the award-winning About… series. Ideal for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary Spanish, science, and animal life units.
