Big Book of Bugs
This giant, splendidly illustrated book of bugs will have children reaching for a magnifying glass instead of that fly swatter. Bugs have never looked better than in Zommer's colorful, often comical little portraits and glorious natural backdrops, from gardens to ponds. Each artfully composed, oversized spread teems with life and mini-bug dramas, and the brief text is fun and accessible. By the end, two-legged whippersnappers will be convinced that bugs are not only intriguing and marvelous, but useful and deserving of respect.
