“We're back for more fun and facts! The second coloring book by this amazing author and illustrator duo has bug-loving kids in mind. From beginning to end, Bug Book for Kids will easily entertain any child interested in insects. They will enjoy learning about them, coloring them, and even creating their own trading cards. The creatures included are backyard bugs that your child likely already knows and loves; they will also learn how some of our favorite bugs are, in fact, not insects at all! As a former insect collector, I greatly appreciate the facts about spiders, scorpions, and pillbugs setting the record straight and hopefully inspiring the next generation of entomologists!” —Debra Lanum-Carnes, K-8 STEM educator
“Katie Henries-Meisner’s Bug Book for Kids is a great tool for children to explore the world of bugs on their own or in a group, both in a classroom or at home. The language used is digestible to children while being informative of the characteristics, habitats, and life cycles of bugs. And the illustrations and trading cards are beautifully drawn. As a teacher and parent who loves to take students on bug hunts, I think her book would be a great addition to any home or classroom.” —Candi Fuller, early education, preschool teacher
