Creep and Flutter
Nature lovers rejoice! Beloved naturalist, Jim Arnosky, has taken his illustrative talents to the insect world! Children will be engrossed by the detailed drawings and information on mayflies, dragonflies, beetles, caterpillars, butterflies, grasshoppers, katydids, crickets, bees, wasps, spiders, ticks, and many other arthropod relatives. Most illustrations are drawn larger than life showcasing the remarkable detail (accompanied by an actual size silhouette). Includes 6 fold-out pages displaying more than 200 creeping, fluttering critters. I am thrilled to see this newest offering by Jim Arnosky. His works were cherished by my children, inspiring my oldest to create her own nature journals. If you are not familiar with the works of Mr. Arnosky, prepare to be amazed by his brilliantly detailed, real-life illustrations. 39 pgs, pb. ~ Deanne
