Mini Beasts by Danielle Stevens


Mini Beasts by Danielle Stevens

Little critters are amazing beings. Some you can see, some you can't. But no matter how small, every one has an effect on the planet. Learn to love these creepy crawlies by discovering their peculiar habits, such as the bug that uses a disguise, the cicada that hibernates underground for 17 years and the cricket that sings. Mini Beasts introduces the most incredible tiny creatures in a friendly, colorful and fascinating style, with scale illustrations which help children grasp the difficult concepts of size and weight. The World of Wonder Series is a highly visual introduction to exciting topics and important concepts, ranging from the animals of the prehistoric world to spacecraft investigating new planets. Packed with clear information and colorful pictures, these fascinating titles help children to become experts on a whole range of subjects. Magnificent full-color illustrations almost leap to life off the page, and see-through scenechanging acetate pages give an insider's view of everything from the innner workings of a dinosaur to the construction of a skyscraper. All illustrations and diagrams are clearly accompanied by captions and annotations, and inset boxes provide surprising facts and statistics for the factfinder in a hurry. All titles feature a 'true or false' quiz running through the book, with answers given at the end, to make the book truly interactive, along with a 'Useful Words' page and index, encouraging children to use the book as an educational resource.
