Overview

Bugged: How Insects Changed History by Sarah Albee, Robert Leighton

There are about ten quintillion insects in the world-and some of them have affected human history in tremendous ways! For as long as humans have been on earth, we've co-existed with insects . . . for better or for worse. Once you begin to look at world history through fly-specked glasses, you begin to see the mark of these minute life forms at every turn. Beneficial bugs have built empires. Bad bugs have toppled them. Bugged is not your everyday history book. From the author and illustrator team behind kid-favorite Poop Happened! A History of the World from the Bottom Up, this combination of world history, social history, natural science, epidemiology, public health, conservation, and microbiology is told with fun and informative graphics and in an irreverent voice, making this one fun-to-read book.

A little gross in parts, but my science minded son loved it, and it really was fascinating. My son is 4, but the reading level is more late elementary school/junior high. Lots of pictures, insets, and fun facts make science and history interesting for all ages.
