Find Out About Insects : With 18 Projects and More Than 260 Pictures
By Dr Jen Green

This book offers an accessible and engaging introduction to insects. You can find out about butterflies, moths, ants, termites, bees, wasps, dragonflies and other fascinating minibeasts. 18 practical projects using everyday objects and equipment bring you in touch with insects and their lifecycles - make a pond net and a pooter to collect specimens for study, rear stick insects, and watch a tortoiseshell butterfly emerge from its chrysalis. Over 260 images include step-by-step photographs and explanatory illustrations. It is ideal for home or school use for 8- to 12-year-olds. Insects outnumber people by 200 million to one and can survive in every habitat on the globe. Yet how often do we stop and admire these amazing creatures? This exciting book shows readers the secrets of the insect kingdom - see a close-up of a dragonfly's eye and discover how it views the world, learn how a fly can walk upside down and taste with its feet, and explore the internal workings of a wasp. Fascinating and easy-to-do projects and experiments, such as making an ant colony and observing insects at night, invite young scientists into the weird and wonderful world of insects. Children will enjoy the 260 stunning photographs and specially commissioned illustrations, while the lively and informative text by an expert natural history writer makes this the perfect fun learning book for school projects, home study or classroom use.
