Beetles fly, frogs hop, and slugs slide over the pages of this book, made to be read by a child while lying on the grass.
We are not alone! Want proof? Take this book to a nice grassy spot outside, plop down and open it. In short order, all sorts of curious creatures will hop, fly, wiggle, and slide to join you. You’re invited to tilt, tap, or jiggle the book to discover the fascinating way each animal moves. This book engages children’s imaginations as it introduces them to an amazing, tiny world! Author-illustrator John Himmelman knows a lot about bugs, as well as the other critters, which he has accurately illustrated to size and proportion. “Explore More” sections are chock full of fun activities, including “engineering an insect” and creating a “mini-beast hotel.”
