Synopsis

Insects and Creepy-Crawlies by Jinny, Aut Johnson

Anyone who has ever looked at an insect with a magnifying glass knows that the world of these tiny creatures is fascinating. In Explorers: Insects and Creepy-Crawlies, readers get an up-close view of life in a wide variety of insect colonies through six beautifully illustrated story scenes that each examine a key aspect of entomological study-from insect homes, to reproduction, life in the water, hunting and gathering, and insects that fly. Once readers absorb the key elements of the story, they explore the science through photos and fact boxes on the following page. Young readers who are interested in specific themes such as can hop through the book following one of four special subject icons for a completely different reading experience
