Children's LiteratureKids who believe that bugs have a certain charm will find a plethora of information in this book with its easy accessibility. The question-and-answer format gives kids the lowdown on the fascinating facts they want to know about. Did you know that poop would pile up around us if dung beetles disappeared? How about the fact that the mother wolf spider carries all 100 of her babies on her back for a whole week after they hatch. It is interesting to note that female trapdoor spiders live up to 25 years, but their mates die after mating one time. Kids will learn why it is hard to swat a fly, the difference between moths and butterflies, and why we would not have chocolate if bugs disappeared. Glossy photos pack the pages and the one-page answers are clear and to the point. Bug watchers will make this a favorite and will want to check out the appended resources, which are book formats and web sites. 2004, NorthWord Press, Ages 6 to 10.
