This fact book covers a lot of information about different kinds of bugs. It seems like its purpose is to introduce the reader to less common types of bugs and how they function. There was a strong focus on what the bugs eat and what their defense mechanisms are. The photos were magnified to show the bugs closer than the human eye see. This was a great way to show the bugs with better detail. Something that this book has that I have not seen in other books is “A Note to Parents” at the beginning...more
This is a simply written non-fiction book. Most non-fiction books are written for older kids, or for younger kids only as read-alouds. A *factual* book that early readers can read to themselves?


Not every kid wants fairies and talking dinosaurs all the time. Sometimes, they really just want plain facts.

I really like this book, have I said?

I do have one minor problem with it, and that is that the text is really not laid out in the best way for this stage of reader. It can be a little dis...more

This book, which is considered by DK as a “Level 2” option—rated by them as for Grades 1-3—provides interesting facts about common and unique insects alike, and supplements the information with close-up photos of the various bugs. The sentences are relatively simple, though some words might need explanations for understanding. Know up front, however, that the topics of death and the killi...more

We got this for my daughter to try to take away some of the scariness of bugs. She likes the book and asks for it. She enjoys hearing about bugs in nature. The photos are good. The simplified facts are useful, though some of the languge is a bit stiff. My biggest complaint is that a catrpillar is mislabled twice as a Monarch, when it very definitely isn't.

It appears I have an older version of the book (published in 1996), so perhaps some of these things have changed.

Bugs, what do they really do and who do they really bother. This book mentions just a small small portion of bugs in the world. It also talks about what each bug might do if another bug gets near them.

If you ever woundered what a bug might look like just glance at the pictures in this book. These pictures look so realistic, it seems like they are sittin right there on your hand. Also the text wonderfully describes each bug perfectly

This one wasn't as interesting to my son as the others in the collection. I think it has to do with what they decided to discuss in the text. The pictures, being from DK, are of course awesome.
Starts off with rather gruesome descriptions of bugs eating other bugs. Then tells how bugs avoid being eaten.

Read through sniffles, but Jack found the information about the different bugs to be fascinating.
like all DK books, great pictures
easy early reader
