The Big Book of Bugs by Yuval Zommer and Barbara Taylor (Thames and Hudson)
Posted by ReadItDaddy at 9:30 AM Labels: Barbara Taylor, Thames and Hudson Publishing, The Big Book of Bugs, Yuval Zommer
The Big Book of Bugs teams fabulous illustrative and storytelling talent Yuval Zommer with insect expert Barbara Taylor together to produce one heck of a big huge stunning bug book.
Naturally, "The Big Book of Bugs" probably isn't for the faint hearted, but if you can show us a kid under 15 who doesn't think bugs are the best thing ever, we'll eat our liquorice hats!
Packed with facts and figures about practically every insect species on the planet you'll learn some key facts about the creatures we (sometimes very uncomfortably) share our world with. Treat 'em well, they'll take over one day after all!
|Getting a buzz about bees, honey!|
For example we've always known how fascinating bees are, but important information (like how they make their wonderful honey) is shared in a kid-friendly way (can you spot the two wasps who've sneaked into the page?)
|Flutter by, butterfly!|
|Go go, glow worm!|
We do love a big book chock full of brilliant facts and details, and it's an absolutely genius idea to let Yuval Zommer loose producing the most gorgeous illustrations to accompany the information. This is one of the most attractive non-fiction books we've seen this year, if not ever! It's out today so buzz, wiggle, slither or crawl down to your local book store and fill your boots (hopefully not with bugs!)
Charlotte's favourite bit: Learning more about butterflies and moths
Daddy's favourite bit: A bug's life for us! We have really enjoyed this fantastic book and can see it's going to be a huge hit with children everywhere thanks to some brilliant facts and glorious illustrations.
