Explorers: Insects and Minibeasts by Jinny Johnson

Insects and Minibeasts is an adventure with some of the smallest creatures in the animal kingdom, visiting bees, bugs, ants, spiders, worms and other fascinating minibeasts from around the world. Each bright, vibrant Explorers title features a series of beautiful, child-friendly, story-based scenes - easy to read but with a wealth of detail and plenty to look for - partnered by photographic spreads giving more in-depth information. There's a fun extra element: coloured buttons throughout the book allow readers to jump about through the book and find connections between topics - connections that are neatly summarised at the end of each book.
