Yuval Zommer‘s ‘The Big Book of Bugs‘ is a veritable encyclopaedia of all things bugs related. From stingers and chirpers, to wrigglers and fliers.
Coupled with jam-packed spreads and sumptuously detailed illustrations, this makes for a highly engaging, yet understated learning experience for any young bug-spotter.
Barbara Taylor includes an array of our insect friends, from ants to silverfish and night-time bugs to house-loving bugs.
With snippets of information and fun-filled facts, this book provides a wealth of information about a positively bustling cornucopia of creepy-crawlies.

Delivered by Zommer, in a most creative and inventive style, children (and adults) will be unlikely to even realise they are undergoing a wildlife lesson in some of nature’s tiniest most fascinating creatures.
With a ‘seek-and-find’ element to this quality piece of non-fiction, it provides another layer to this already captivating lesson in mini beasts.
Quirky, easily relatable facts including things like ‘Spiders have 48 knees‘, ‘A horsefly can fly faster than a car‘ and ‘Some grasshoppers can jump 20 times their length‘ make for a fun, light-hearted way of learning and one we highly commend.
This larger than life book is crammed with critters and their hectic habitats. A perfect addition to any young person’s shelf and an undoubtedly valuable resource for any school or library.
