Children's LiteratureRosie Dickens brings a keen eye to Bugs. The book is crammed with cool facts about things creepy crawly. Did you know that one ladybug can consume 5,000 garden-chomping aphids in a lifetime? Or that the beautiful monarch butterfly can make most animals sick when eaten? Especially compelling are the numerous color photographs and illustrations by John Woodcock, in which these insects loom much larger than life. Young readers will have a great time examining hatching caterpillars and spotting the dung beetle carefully creating a dung-ball supper for its babies. Each double-page spread includes information on internet links, encouraging budding entomologists to go beyond these pages to discover more about bugs. 2002, Usborne, Ages 5 to 12.
