More Pet Bugs A Kid's Guide to Catching and Keeping Insects and Other Small Creatures by Sally Kneidel

Where can you find a seven-inch caterpillar? What beetles produce tiny explosions to protect themselves? Which plants do grasshoppers like to eat most? Now children can find their own answers to these and loads of other questions in this creepy, crawly, and wonderfully interactive follow-up to the perennial kids' favorite Pet Bugs. More Pet Bugs introduces a new batch of fascinating bugs, all of which can be easily kept as pets. Each chapter covers a particular bug-what it looks like, where to find it, how to catch it, and how to care for it-and features tons of information about why it behaves the way it does. Kids will have a blast building a miniature home for their pet, catching a speedy water bug, learning why slugs are so slimy, and much more.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
