About Insects

About Insects

This beginner's guide to insects is a must-have for the bug-obsessed bookshelf. From Cathryn and John Sill, creators of the award-winning About... and About Habitats series.

"Excellent classroom or pleasure reading for science and nature fans and for any beginning readers drawn to nonfiction." ―Booklist

In this addition to the acclaimed About... series, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what insects are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live.

With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to a wide variety of insects, from ants and beetles to grasshoppers and the Monarch Butterfly. An afterword provides further details, inspiring young readers to learn more.

About Insects is part of the award-winning About... series. Ideal for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary science and animal life units.

Also available from Cathryn and John Sill:
Sobre los insectos: Una guía para niños (About Mammals, Spanish Edition)
About Insects / Sobre los insectos: A Guide for Children / Una guía para niños (English/Spanish Bilingual Edition)
