Read an Excerpt

What do you think an insect is? Perhaps you think it is a very small animal with lots of legs. Well, this is close, but how many legs does it have? Six? Eight? Or more?

Maybe you think that insects are very small animals with lots of legs that can fly. That is a better way of describing an insect because all of the very small, many-legged flying animals that you see are insects.
