Books & Bugs

How do you get a five year old interested in collecting insects? Easy, you give them a copy of this book sometime in the 1980s. My copy came from a sale at a school library.

There isn’t really much in it about insects, just these two pages, but it was enough to start to get me hooked. I remember reading though the book many times over the summer and trying some of the experiments described inside.

The illustrations were by Bernard West.
