Great book for my daughter
My daughter hates bugs and either runs in terror or stomps them. I got her this book to educate her about how cool bugs can be. It seems to have made a difference, making her more interested in the tiny world of insects around us.
The interactive nature of the book helped draw her in and got her interested in finishing the whole book.
Overall I was really happy with it.
