This book for children about insects and spiders is the perfect companion for young minds eager to learn about the amazing world of bugs.
Children are encouraged to investigate and record all the creepy crawlies they find as well as to get involved in hands-on activities, from making their own "pooter" to collect insects to building an ant farm.
With a mix of fantastic photographs and beautiful illustrations, Insects and Spiders takes you through everything you need to know about these bewildering bugs. Learn what termites build their nests from, how an earwig looks after her eggs, and why wasps have black and yellow stripes.
The Nature Explorers series is essential for any child curious about the world outside. Each book in the series takes children through the basics of the subject, starting by explaining what it is and then moving on to the key topics. These are wonderful introductions to the great outdoors, packed with fun facts and engaging activities, ideal for children aged 6 and up.
